The whole world remembers 9/11/2001, and we all should. It's a reminder of a lot of things for a lot of people, but this post is not about that. This post is about what happened to me the day after.
I read a newspaper for the first time in at least 10 years.
I prayed as soon as my feet hit the floor, for the first time since I was 12.
I started paying attention to politics, both in the US and abroad.
I went to church, not because someone else wanted me to but because I needed to for probably the first time ever.
There were so many other things that slowly began to change in my life as a result of the events of 9/11/2001. For those changes, I am a better person. I now know what is going on, both in the world and in the US Capitol Building. I now am involved, in political campaigns and in making the world a better place.
Because one thing happened for sure!
On 9/12/2001, I (finally) began to grow up.
