Well my timing is all wrong, but... stopped for a moment and thought about what has changed, what hasn't... the sorrow, the triumph, the incredible camaraderie and the horror that we humans do to one another in the name of ideology.
Remembering to take nothing for granted; to live each day as if it were my last. Tell my loved ones what they mean to me. Reconnect with old friends. Make amends or at least work on mending fences. Let go of old grudges.
Gentle hugs for those who lost someone eight years ago. Bigger hugs for you military folks who stand watch.
