Default An Anniversary

September 11, 2001 -- October 11, 2001

Is your glass empty? Is it full of fear and intimidation? Or is it an opportunity?

PS: By the way, cruisin's a great way to get away and think about where we go from here.

Jim,
I certainly understand people's fears following the 9-11 tragedy and in these stressful times. However, I'm with U... I believe u have to LIVE life!

This hit home to me even more yesterday when I learned of the death of a dear cruise friend. The most gentle and delightful man one would ever want to meet. I considered he and his wife my "Florida family", and I loved my pre cruise nights in Florida because it meant I got to see them again.
His passing had nothing to do with any of the horrific events. It only had to do with the, sometimes difficult to accept, cycle of life.
I, and his MANY friends will miss him terribly, and while we'll shed tears for him and all the innocents who have lost their lives, we'll toast him when we're cruising for New Years. A cruise he was scheduled to join us on, and surely would have if able.

Unfortunately none of us are given the foresight to know when our lives will end. And while the risks are possibly higher now, to do anything less than LIVE during the time we are given would seem to be a waste of a precious gift.

To my dear friend Dick... be well in Heaven!

Regards,
Kuki

My sentiments as well. Make each day count. Life is a gift we all have for a very short time....do something postive with it.

Kuki: Sorry to hear about your friend. I'll bet he'll have a few toasts raised to celebrate his life, during your new year's cruise.
