I was on my Grandma house , it was around 8:30 to 8:40 am i set the TV to my grandma to see the soap opera she look at the morning time and see they have the same in all channels at the beginning i was thinking it was a movie till i stop and see it was for real , it was a so scary and i was impress at the same time , you never think that some like that will happen at home , but it did , that tell us that the world is so small , i see so many people get hurt in a small period of time.

But the eyes just see what it can be show, the real world is not just 911 this been so many other places around the world, that attack some times happen in small villages that people don't see it ,but it happen we just see it because it happen in our back yard, i am so sorry for what happen that day we still remember it , but i am so sorry on how the world is been going since then , is been war , war and more war , for something that start at home and by home people.....

As I began to take a sip from my glass of water, I counted my blessings. Never take anything in this life for granted, not even something as simple and as pure as the water you drink. You never know when you won't have that luxury ever again.
