Sept 11, 2005

4 years later. Makes you think.
I am consumed with the sadness and loss of life from The Gulf Coast.
I contributed my money like everyone else. The kids and I will get our used clothes thogether and call up the Salvation Army.
At this point in my life it is all I can do.
I am very happy for my little life. Even if it does anoy me from time to time.
I will also update our disaster supplies. Then try to figure out how I would be able to get myself and my kids out of the city if we had to.
I do not drive and do not have a car, so I guess the kids and I better learn how to walk with a pack on our backs.
My biggest fear is that I will be at work. I work on the other side of the Bay. On a normal day it takes me 90 minutes to get home.
I guess we need to sit down and plan out what we will do in the event of a disaster and we can't make it home.

Hi Dympna,

I've been thinking about 9/11, too, with my dad in Dubai visiting his siblings who have all left Iraq.

As for a disaster plan, our objective in a crisis is to meet back at home, since it's away from downtown. My hub is contemplating a job in Oakland, so I'm not sure if that's still a good idea. If you and your family think of a good plan, let me know and I may borrow it!
