OOH …Here’s One Thing

Spirits in the Material World

My conscience wouldn’t rest if I didn’t say something about 9-11 this week.  It’s still incredibly sad to me, and incredibly sad that they pretty much cancelled the normal services that mark that infamous day this year.  Instead of the families of their fallen ones getting the chance to read their names, pre-recorded voices were piped from loudspeakers.  Anyone else feel like we have lost our collective minds (and maybe our soul)?  

If you have a few minutes, these two snipets are worth a watch in honor of 9-11:    



“Tomorrow, I’ll be back there, workin’ on the pile
Going in, comin’ out, single file
Before my job is done there’s one more trip I’m makin’
To Grand Central Station, Grand Central Station”  – Mary Chapin Carpenter

Okay, so what’s the point Johnsen?  There is absolutely no point…other than to honor and remember all the loved ones we lost and all the children that were robbed of mothers or fathers, forever, on that horrific day.  I’ll leave you with a related Police song relevant to Mary Chapin Carpenter’s little explanation as well as our current sad state of affairs.


Wishing you all a productive week.
