nine eleven

I love this song when it's performed this way. I've never really cared to hear it sung/performed with artistic impression. But that's just me. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.





todAAyi AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have visited Ground Zero in Manhattan and could feel its significance

that Al-Queda terrorists have laregely been thwarted in this country for the past 9 years.

that most meetings where the first step is discussed, more is revealed to me

for THIS wonderful story of freedom from louisey over at Letting It Go

for the process of discussion versus argument

that I'm going to another Astros game tonight with a friend in recovery


Enthusiasm is a volcano on whose top never grows the grass of hesitation.
- Kahlil Gibran

ground zero is hallowed ground...I wish they would just leave it be...

I had the privelge of hearing a women do her Step 1 at a meeting last night. We were on Step 6 but she's on Step 1..she didn't know she was doing Step 1 but her share was exactly that...its a beautiful thing to be a part of.

It's still overwhelming to me to think of the significance of this date. My visit to Ground Zero has been etched in my mind and soul forever. Are you participating in the flag flying tribute today?

I felt spirits at Ground Zero. It was an eerie feeling. I am glad to know more about me and life in recovery since then.

At one and the same moment, I felt tears on my cheeks, and joy in my heart.
Peace

Now that brought goose bumps and bit of a teary eye. Thanks for one of the most beautiful renditions of our National Anthem.
