Waiting on the World to Change

I am so glad that he was born after 9/11. Glad that he's too little to understand what's happening in the world. I can still shield him from the news. And yet, the reality of terrorism hits way too close to home without him even knowing it.

His father rode a train last night protected by a machine gun toting policeman. His aunt works on Wall Street where the lobby of her office building now includes bomb sniffing dogs. He plays with a little boy who's Dad died in the Twin Towers.

It's touching his world - this terrorism thing. And there isn't a single thing I can do about it. Except pray, have faith and wait on the world to change.


  1. Nice sentiments. Hug him and protect him while you can and hope when you are ready to set him free you did a good job. All you can do is pray for a better world. My best friends husband suffers from a lung illness due to being a 1st responder. You take amazing pictures that your layouts only enhance.

  2. Oh Nancy you are so damn right. Even here in Germany I have the same thoughts. I think every mother has. We must concentrate on the little good things in life.

  3. I don't know which I like better, your amazing scrapbook pages or your amazing photos. This is a great shot - TFS!
