It's Never To Late?

9/11 was a sobering moment for us in the United States. Will lives perished and heroes rose from the ashes, one message came clear loud and clear to me…It’s never to late.


It’s 9/11 once again. A day to remember those that perished and those who were heroes’ on 9/11/2001 as the United States witnessed the most tragic of terrorist attacks in history. I remember that morning vividly. I had just taken my kids to school and had the T.V. on playing the background as I perused the online job boards. I had been unemployed for about 3 months and was taking my time finding the just right next career move.

As the news reports started to amp up over the World Trade Center situation, I like others sat mesmerized by what was happening. Thoughts of a few friends who lived in New York skittered across my mind. Were they safe? Did they actually go to work that day? You know, the normal fearful questioning thoughts that come about during a crisis. Then in rapt attention, I too watched the first tower crumble and then the next. Dumbfounded, I couldn’t do anything the rest of that day.

The next day, I received a message from Planet Out, the equivalent of for the gay community at that time, that someone liked my profile. I was not in the dating mode at that time, nor was I really looking to meet anyone, however, curiosity led me to take a look and respond to a very handsome and sexy Hispanic guy, that has now been my partner for 12 years, come September 16th.

Each year as we remember all those who perished in the tragedies of 9/11 I am reminded that it’s never to late. Never to late to…
