9/11

Today is September 11th. If you didn't already know that, a quick glance to your bottom right hand corner can confirm that for you. I think there are very few people in the world who don't know what happened on this day. It was a tragedy and perhaps a wakeup call to the US that terrorism is closer than it thinks. It prompted Bush's "war on terrorism"- which I fully support but that is besides the point I want to make in this post.

It's days like these, and the acts of sheer hatred that cause them to become memorable days, that remind me how lucky I am. Today was my first day back on base after two months (minus a few days in the middle). Seeing all my friends there and their warm welcomes back was needless to say, wonderful. It reminded me how proud I am to serve in the IDF. It reminded me really how lucky I am to have such great friends both on base and at home. To have a wonderful family waiting for me (well maybe not waiting) when I get home. Days like today remind you that in an instant it can all be over.

So as Horace said:"Carpe Diem!" SEIZE THAT FISH!...er...ah...I mean day. Seize the day!
