THE MIDDLE BEFORE THE OTHER SIDE.

TODAY NATASHA AND I DECIDED TO TAKE A LITTLE DRIVE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BIG FENCE.

WE PLANNED ON DRIVING INTO CANADA TO SEE THE INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDENS AND ENDED UP FINDING THE GEOGRAPHICAL CENTER OF NORTH AMERICA BEFORE WE EVEN GOT TO THE BORDER.  IMAGINE THAT, FEELING LIKE YOU ARE ON TOP OF THE DANG WORLD AND YOU FIND OUT YOU ARE JUST IN THE GEOGRAPHIC MIDDLE OF THE CONTINENT THAT YOUR OWN DANG COUNTRY IS IN.  

THE GARDENS WERE BEAUTIFUL TO BEHOLD.  ONE SIDE OF THE GARDENS WAS ON CANADA’S SIDE AND THE OTHER WAS IN THE UNITED STATES.  THAT ITSELF WAS WORTH MORE THAN THE LONG DRIVE AND THE PRICE OF ADMISSION.

THE MOST HEART WRENCHING THING THERE WAS THE 911 MEMORIAL.  I TOOK PAUSE AS I REALIZED I WAS TOUCHING AND STANDING NEXT TO PIECES OF THE TWIN TOWERS THAT STOOD SO GALLANTLY IN NEW YORK CITY BEFORE THERE WERE KNOCKED OUT OF THE SKY 15 YEARS AGO THIS SUNDAY.

I HAD A GREAT TIME AT THE INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDENS BUT I WILL NEVER FORGET HOW I FELT ABOUT WHAT I SAW, TOUCHED AND EXPERIENCED TODAY.

LET’S NOT FORGET ALL OF THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO WENT RUNNING INTO A TRAGEDY TO SAVE US WHEN NORMAL PEOPLE RUN OUT.
