The second was more profound. It was a quote from Sandy Dahl, the wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, and she said this:
“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
I wonder how she was feeling when she made this statement. Was she saying it like a mantra, hoping that it would someday become true to her? Or did she really find a way to banish hatred from what must have been her broken heart? Either way, I applaud her strength of character and attempt to find a splinter of truth from a horrific loss.
We celebrated our lives, family and freedoms today by ordering Thai/Chinese takeout and heading over to the park for some playtime. Our great friend Danny showed up and made Porter’s night. Life is short and I’m so grateful to be able to celebrate every single day.
