9/11

September 11, 2010

I remember I was at work …..early…a co-worker… Lynne….came up to the second
floor..with her long flowing slightly reddish …. almost straightened hair…. vinyl mini skirt on….
black knee…… calf length leather boots…and said …

Did you hear that the World Trade Center has been hit by a plane….

for some reason I did not believe her..

I turned on my boss Joan’s TV in her office just as the second plane hit…..I thought I was watching a TV movie…I was just in shock…..as it could NOT be real…….

Lynne was kind of an odd duck…….she was a parking permit clerk…a job I had had
for 6 years….but all she wanted and dreamed about were DIAMONDS….more and
more…

when I went downstairs her computer was usually on the Tiffany page….

she married a Russian jeweler at a beach near Malibu …as the sun was
setting…barefoot with an off white silk dress…no veil……..that Daddy paid for…

I heard later that …the marriage had dissolved along with her dreams for
diamonds…..as Boris had become a US citizen…..n really did not need her….

she also was one of those people who talked a bit too much…..like when she was
manning the permit counter …there often was a line that went out the door…as she
just …well LOVED to talk……especially about diamonds……

God bless her…

But ESPECIALLY all of those who lost family and friends…..who came from ALL FAITHS….

I FRANKLY think of my Muslim friends…..the senseless persecution they are going through
now….is SOO WRONG…..what Jews, Black, homosexuals, Women, Mexicans …have
gone through for years….

so Today ..at 5:46 Am PDT..(yes I get up early)…. I stopped EVERYTHING I was
doing ….at the moment that that first plane hit the World Trade Center…..
and said “ God…Allah …Please ..Please open EVERYONE’s mind…..like a vault……to
see the diamonds that exist within all of us…..”
