9/11 and the 10 Days of Awe

Tomorrow is the anniversary of 9/11*, so perhaps you can take a few moments of your time to honor those who died. Below is a photo of the memorial wall which I have not yet seen and hope to do so.

Just as 9/11 gives us pause to remember loved ones who perished on 9/11, I want to use the 10 Days of Awe from Rosh Hoshana (Jewish New Year) to Yom Kippor (Day of Atonement) to reflect and go inward and think about Life. On my brithday in December I will enter a new decade and want to use this time of the Days of Awe* to reflect on the meaning of Life, my life, and other issues such as forgiveness, reflection, repentance, and renewal. (I suspect many people who go to the wall may do the same thing.)

Therefore, I am writing postings that will be post-dated to appear on the dates I will be “reflecting” and may not read your comments until the end of the month.

*It is also my grandson’s birthday. He was born 9/11/91, so I always have mixed feelings about this day of sorrow and happiness about his birth.

I look forward to this time of reflection and will check my comments at the end of the 10 days. Thank you for reading me!

*Note:  If you go to www.jewfaq.org, you can read more about the Days of Awe and how we are written in The Book of Life or The Book of Death. Quite interesting.

    I agree. People need to remember and
    help others. I have been to the Memorial
    and Museum. It all hits”home” — heart
    and soul. The perpetrators changed life for
    the whole world.
