It's funny how these months are starting to run together. Because of it being my birthday, I didn't even realize that today was our 18th month log in date anniversary.
I guess turning 39 was good for something.......
It's so hard to believe, that it's been 6 years since 9-11-2001. It was a day of terrible loss and tremendous human courage. It was a day that was forever etched in our hearts and minds, for a time, bringing us all together as a nation. As horrific as that day was, it showed that we are at our best, at the worst of times. It also showed us, as in times past, how hate can destroy innocent lives. I don't think anyone with a heartbeat, will ever forget those images and prays that we never see a day like that again.
I had hoped that we would stay united as a country, but there are so many things that, yet again, divide us as a nation. When will we stop seeing each other as Christian, Muslim, Jew....Black, White, Yellow, Brown....and start seeing each other as human beings, each with their own right to exist, to love, to laugh, to just be......


As you can see from the image from the CCAA website, they have matched families with babies from 11/22/05 to 11/24/05. Four days of referrals, it stinks, but it is what it is. I just have to close my eyes and just keep repeating to myself...

"It's gonna be worth it.....it's gonna be with it...it's gonna be worth it.....

Even while saying that to myself, our hearts hurt and I wonder if it will ever happen.....*sigh* Rich says that if CCAA continues at current trends, we wont get a referall until Jan '09..ouch..hurts to hear it, but I am beginning to think he might be right....
