On April 6, 2009, halfway around the world in Coppito, Italy, thousands were devastated by an earthquake. Their world stood still that day. I cleaned my house. On December 26, 2004, hundreds of thousands of lives were lost when an Indian Ocean Tsunami made its way upon land. Their world stood still that day. I was at the mall trying to catch some after Christmas deals. On September 11, 2001, several airplanes controlled by lunatics made sure that an airport runway wasn’t their destination. Instead, they chose buildings in New York City and Washington, D.C., and a Pennsylvania field. Thousands of lives were forever changed. Their world stood still that day. I was dropping off my son to Mother’s Day Out and going to a meeting at my church to plan the next several church services. The three aforementioned instances are rather disheartening. Most of our world knows about these. And while we were saddened by the news, most of us went about our merry way. Everyday, in the lives of normal people who are not captured on national television, random acts disrupt and devastate plenty. It could be the loss of a family member or the news that no one wants to hear. Whatever it is, whether great or small in the eyes of the world, it’s enough to stop your own. Learning that my Daddy had cancer on July 25, 1989. Hearing the news that my Daddy died on March 21, 1990. Finding out that my four cousins had died in the Jarrell, Texas tornado on May 27, 1997. My husband’s confession of infidelity on February 19, 2002. Those were the days my world stood still. Ever had a day where it happened to you?
