Just as the title speaks… Today’s 9/11.
I was still too small to understand what 9/11 was abt when it really happened, but now that I understood… I feel sad. Just sad. Not terrified, not horrified.. Just sad.
Before she died, my great grandma will always say: “if you think you’re the most successful person, look up. There will always be someone who are better than you– stay grounded. If you think you’re the most worthless person, look down. There will always be someone who are in worse conditions than you are– be thankful.”
And she’s right.
So again, my deepest condolences to the family of those who have passed in that tragic day. May they all RIP.
Because regardless of whether or not I hurt today, there will always be someone who will hurt more, and even though it didn’t make the pain any more insignificant for me, it’s good to know that pain is shared by everyone living in this horrific world.
And that should suffice.
