Good morning  
Our building is observing a moment of silence at 8:46 am, and the flags will be lowered to half-staff after which the national anthem will be played.

How will you be observing the day?

For myself, I think I will be avoiding the television media in particular. Personally, I don't feel the rehash that will go on there will be beneficial, but perhaps it will be of use to some.

However you spend your day, I hope it's a good one for you!

Gary, hi! I'm Lisa, I surfed through via kelly_marie's journal. You don't happen to work for Ford or Visteon do you? I work at a Visteon/Ford plant in Michigan and the moment of silence and flags at half mast are exactly how we are remembering this day.

Re: Visteon?
Hi Lisa! No, I work at the USDA building in Kansas City.

USDA, hmmm?
You don't have anything to do with w/ inspections for licensed dog breeders, do you? What type of job do you have? I'm a mechanical designer in the Starter division of Visteon.

Re: USDA, hmmm?
I work with computers. USDA (US Dept of Agriculture)where I work is mainly concerned with crops such as cotton and tobacco and the loans that are given to the farmers. I support a computer network with the main server being in Wash DC.

Good morning Gary. I'm going to spend the day working but doing so in rememberance of the victims of that awful day a year ago. I'm also going to spend it in hopeful prayer that we as a nation have learned the lessons of that awful day. We can no longer afford to kick God out of our lives and our government.

I agree with your prayer Audis, but I have the feeling that we, as a country, have lost most of the value of that lesson already, although I hope I am wrong.

The television coverage...
is very sad indeed.

My heart is certainly in the right place here....but I'm way too much of an emotional person to watch.
I cry the entire time I watch.

Well anyway, I hope your day goes by quickly.
When I wrote that it made me laugh.
Cause it seems, I can blink & a years gone by....
Take care...

Re: blinking...
Yes, and it doesn't get better as you get older! The time just flies all the more!

Since there won't be anything interesting on TV tonight, and since I never watch it during the day anyway, I'll limit my TV to the nightly news and Leno ;)
