Anyway a week ago I just decided you know what? I needed to make time for me, and get away. So I just went online and purchase a round trip ticket to San Diego as I felt I just needed to do “ just do me” because sometime you need to be selfish and put yourself first as my friend Jill put it and she was totally right.
Never forget, Unfortunately I think a lot of people forget the life lessons that came out those tragic events on 9/11. Remember how we as a country, neighbors, and strangers all banded together for the common good of civilization and how it brought out the best in people during tragedy, and how we were all proud to be Americans. There were American flags were everywhere the eye could see for miles. The same could be said about other times in our history as a country.
