A Pompous But Earnest Announcement
Yes, we must always honor the memory of those who were slain. But you know what?....I refuse to let evil bastards define this day.
On this day 1 year ago, our beautiful, playful cat Marley was born. She's been a playful, energetic, endlessly curious, somewhat bratty spark of life ever since. Yes, she's just a cat, but she reminds me of life's many small joys.
Therefore, I hereby reclaim this day for life. I will honor the dead and, with God's help, I will fight the evil that I encounter (which usually comes in forms much more mundane than terrorists). But for me, September 11 is a day of death no longer.
I encourage each of you to find a way to reclaim this day for life. Let me know how!
Pompous But Earnest announcement is over.
[Terrorists, screw you.]
[Marley, you're a good kitty. Tonight we'll give you some Grown-Up Cat food and a new toy.] [Also, Marley you're an impressive cat. I had no idea you knew how to read a blog!]
