Seeking Comfort

I have some new heroes tonight. Besides all the firefighters and search and rescue personnel et. al. working on site in New York, I have a great admiration for Tom Burnett, Jeremy Glick, Mark Bingham, and the other men who voted on Flight 93 to fight back against the hijackers. I am confident if I was in that situation, I would have been right next to them. Who knows how many people they saved by their actions.

It was an eerie feeling walking around a half deserted Disneyland and California Adventure. There were signs at the entrances to both parks saying, “We are sorry for the inconvenience, but please have all your bags ready to be searched”. I am not sure why I went today, but I think that both Roger and I wanted to be someplace where we felt safe and secure. Someplace that would give the semblance of normalcy in our lives.

As I think about being unemployed, I cannot help but think of the many thousands of people who not only lost friends or loved ones, but to top it off, have lost their jobs.
