charmed by choice, the blog has been a long thoughtful walk through choices. Ultimately, choices to be resilient.
Our family is one of the thousands of real life examples from this recession ...
we have experienced jobloss, mounting debt, property depreciation....
After spending some time hovering in the freak out mode...we have decided there is a choice to be made.
We can choose to stare at all that's challenging us,
or search and concentrate on all the incredible examples of resiliency.
Come along and be amazed at how many people live resiliently...
recovering finacially, emotionally, physically, spiritually...
We've all been told not to stare... but I invite you to stare at all that's resilient.
Let's be inspired and inspire each other.

Paying forward heroism or hatred?

 Does it do any good to memorialize disasters such as 9/11? Do monuments to grief and endless anniversary remembrances re-traumatize us or strengthen our resilience? This question addressed on WebMD, for the entire article ...

The short answer is, for most people, yes, remembering with honor those lost and their loved ones can be used to fuel future forward positive energy.

It's a choice to be fueled by anger and fear or regroup with strength and support. Showing that hate will not destroy us, we'll choose to be fueled by a love for the memory of those lost, honor for the heroes that stepped up in an unprecedented act of hatred against our people within our boundaries.

Many of us will never make it to the ground zero memorial. Although, all of us can choose to honor the individuals lost and the heroism shown through conscious acts that fit into our daily lives, where we are.

This blog is all about resiliency through the actions of everyday people. The following link is an opportunity to choose to focus our remembering by paying forward the love for those lost and the heroism of that day.
