Days We Remember

Monday August 21 2017 is going to be one of those days that people will talk about for years to come when the total eclipse went from the west coast to the east coast.

Unfortunately many days we remember where we were at happened turned to be tragedy. I am sure many Americans who are old enough remember where they were at when President Kennedy was assassinated or his brother Robert or Martin Luther King Jr. The other big one when the war against terrorism started on nine eleven with the planes crashing into the twin towers in New York. I know something I won’t ever forget watching the second crash happened on television. I had just woken up so I missed the first tower being hit but I heard the radio which came on every morning reporting that one of the towers was hit so I went into my living room to turn on the television seeing the plane heading right for the second tower.

Here in Washington State we remember the date May 18 1980 when Mount St. Helen’s had a volcano eruption. I was working that day and a few days later we had ash on the ground. Much of western Washington had the ash on the ground.

There are days of happiness we remember when we or someone close to us was married or birth of children. Another is when we find out the death of a loved one. We all know about happiness and sorrow. We remember those who are no longer with us. We celebrate those who gave their lives for freedom and those who lost the fight against cancer.

The important thing is that we must press on to enjoy each day that we live. Our purpose and destiny in hand; hold the hands of others when the time needs to happen. Have peace in our lives especially when everything around us says otherwise. So enjoy all the days to remember.
