Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

if you had the chance to wipe out your entire memory, forget what you have said, done, forget who you were, and start over...would you do it?

are the good memories worth the bad ones?

don't we all deserve a chance to start over?

i thought that our past makes us wiser and stronger.....

9/11 in New York City

Today is the 7th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. There was a big memorial event today, where all the victims names were read, and all the countries of the world were represented. Mohit and I went to Ground Zero to say a prayer, but didn't know about the memorial that was earlier in the day. One woman who had lived through the attacks told us about the memorial and showed us some pictures that she had taken with her phone. Her office building overlooks the site. She had been right there when the planes had crashed on that day. Hearing her story was intense, and the entire experience of being there on this day and saying a prayer, was overwhelming for both of us. What a difference to be here in this city on the anniversary of the attacks.

Prayers for humanity. Hope for peace. Love shall conquer all.
