So today marks the 15th anniversary of September 11th. Unlike most anniversaries mentioned on my blog, this is one I was actually alive for and had strongly impacted me and my family.
I would just like to dedicate this blog to all those who were first responders, tried to assist in any way, and to all our military. Thank you for all you do. Your sacrifices can never be repaid, all I can do is honor you and let you know how grateful I am.
Well today is a special day in our history. Today not only marks the birth of a new country but a choice that we were no longer to be owned and ruled by kings, instead giving us regular people the power to choose who we want.
While not ever country may view this day as special:
But I sure do.
So however you like to celebrate, whether you treat this day seriously or have fun:
Enjoy your day, but always remember what it stands for.

That’s the truth!
Truer words have never been spoken! This is the sort of person you should try to be.
In fact I would like to dedicate this post to all those who have served and are currently serving in the military. Thank you for being true heroes and protecting all us back here in the U.S.
Happy Memorial Day!!!

Okay I loved the original Conan films with Arnold Schwarzenegger, I thought they were absolutely great. (To read more of my thoughts on the first film, go here.)
So anyways, I found this pic on the internet and it is hilarious. 🙂 And it got me thinking…Wouldn’t Conan make an awesome librarian? I mean with him there would be no late fees, ever.
He would use all his strength and power to pass on the love of reading.
“Mongol General: Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: To teach people how to use the online catalog, help people find the books they want, and create children and adult reading programs!”
Think about it people. Sometimes the way of the future can be pulled out of the past.
