September 12: The Next Day
Question of the week: Can you recall the day after the unthinkable happened?
Welcome to this week's virtual water cooler question of the week, a Woonsocket Patch feature that allows you to weigh in on a subject that affects Woonsocket and how we live in this great city.
As we reflect on the events of September 11, 2001 ten years later our question us: what did you do on September 12, that you did not do on September 10. Most Americans felt the same loss on that horrific day, September 11, but this week's question is this "What did you do differently the day after?"
Did you reconnect with friends and relatives? Did you send your children to school with a tighter hug? Did it make you rethink your surroundings on your way to work. Were you more courteous? Did the things that were so important to you on September 10, have the same importance to you on September 12? Were you a better person. What was different about you? And the real question: Have you gone back to living like you do September, 10, 2001 or are you still living the day after?
