I was flying our friendly skies on this September the 11th,
It was very different because there was so much security!
You almost could feel the fear or panic!
I saw so many different walks of life;
Every race, and creed and age!
My heart was full of compassion and hope!
We are all so different, yet we are the same!
Our journeys may cross each others path,
Will be a blessing to each one we come across?
May I aspire to be a blessing
I grew up in a time of a cultural turning point!
I was a friend to all those of different groups or clicks that were,
So prominent in school.
Why or how they all liked me still shocks me!
I guess it was because I was just being me!
I had no agenda. I just truly loved people!
And on the other side of that coin, they loved me in return!
We can all feel strongly about a certain thing,
But it is when we think everyone else should or must see it in the same
way is where the problems start to surface.
I saw a woman who had no hair from cancer treatments,
I talked with her and just chatted.
I saw a very old man that was telling his story about how things
were, when he was a young man.
I saw a woman who was scared to death to fly;
I tried to calm her.
I saw a young woman who could speak only a few words of English,
she had missed her flight, and I helped her get her papers
and passport arranged in her folder.
(She looked me in the eye and said I am so lost)
I saw a child riding on his suitcase like it was a skateboard.
I laughed at him as he had not a care in the world!
I have my opinions
You have yours
We all have this same life to live...
Live it as well as you can!
Remember opinions can change...
Things can change in a blink of an eye!
