Nightline last night had a piece on how in just one week all of our priorities, hopes, dreams, and most importantly what we had considered important have changed...
How have yours changed?

To be honest, everything's been such a shake-up, I hardly remember what my priorities really were, this time last week. I guess things have shifted to be somewhat less self-centered in my mind. I'd love to hear other peoples' analysis (analysises? Analyses?).

Probably my sense of patriotism. My life will go on with probably few real changes. I have always had great respect for our country and our flag. We attend quite a few sporting events and so forth and i have always stood with my hand over my heart during the national anthem and it has never failed to bring goose bumps to my skin. It has always irked me to see the men who do not remove thier hats and the people having converstaion during this. I have a feeling that the next time i stand for the national anthem there will be more hats removed and far less conversation and as for me it will be more meaningful than ever before.

This weekend I was working outside of the sculpture building at the Maryland Institute College of Art when two uniformed police officers accosted me, demanded to know what I was doing, and informed me that I would have to move on as "We can't allow any civilians in this area."
My current priority is trying not to become too paranoid.

My priorities will not change. I will make more of an effort to make sure that my children feel safe and secure, but they have always been my first priority and always will be. If anything, I may start doing the things that I have been putting off because life just seems more uncertain before.

On the evening of September 10th I saw the most glorious sunset.
I grabbed my camera, took a picture and posted it in the Cafe under 'Goodnight'
We all woke up to a different world.
I have looked at each sunset this week with great sadness.
My priorities will remain the same.
I will still run out to take pictures of the sunset, and I will remember.

"leaflady" - I remember your sunset and just that morning (9/11) I posted a picture of my lake, stating what a beautiful and serene place it was. Little did I know that my good friend Louise would soon be calling me with terror in her voice and I would be instructing her to get out .... while running to turn on the TV.
I will still walk over to the lake each morning and marvel at the glittering beauty. I will take more time for myself and friends. Today instead of work I accompanied Louise as she went from doctor to doctor - something I would not normaly do - you know the old saying work comes first - no more friends come first.
Louise is fine except for infected lungs and eyes,
from the dust.

I was trying to get my hard drive up and running enough to connect to RoadRunner where I have endless minutes on line!!!
