If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, 'thank you,' that would suffice. Meister Eckhart

 

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.  Melody Beattie

 

If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.  Frank A. Clark

 

None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy. Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

 

Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.  Estonian Poverb  

 

Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced, discharged and used up in order to exist at all.  William Faulkner

 

Thanksgiving after all, is a word of action.  W.J. Cameron

 

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  Thornton Wilder

 

Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.  Unknown

 

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.  Johannes A. Gaertner

 

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.  Cicero

 

God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.  Izaak Walton

 

Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.  Seneca

 

O Lord that lends me life, Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.  William Shakespeare

 

Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel.  Unknown

 

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.  Aesop

 

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say "thank you?"   William A. Ward

 

Building 7?

As expected, there was only one public comment on our September 11, 2001 post and no likes at facebook.

Which of course is no surprise as how the hell can anyone possibly like anything having to do with such a gutless attack on innocent people.

Also as expected, my email account got real busy with video from our friends who suspect we aren't getting the whole truth about this thing, but are a little afraid to be labelled as nuts.

We have no such fears here as we cheerfully admit to being at best a little nuts, and we don't trust what our government has to say on any issue one inch further than we are able pick up the Washington Monument and throw it.

Which brings us to this particular post which we started well over a year ago, and left on the shelf as we explored those explanations offered at the many, many 9/11 conspiracy theory debunking sites that can be found all over the internet, the best of which we link to once again here.

The following is the series of videos that first caused us to muse as follows.

Huh?

And then ...

WTF?

 

 

All right then, the video below is a compilation of footage from about every angle imaginable of the collapse of Building 7 of the World Trade Center.

At 46 seconds take note of the dark rectangle at the second and third stories from the top of Building 7 and the older brick and stone skinned structure in the lower right hand corner of the shot that enable you to clearly identify Building 7 and its location.

Got it?

 

 

Now check out the video below where you are being told by the BBC of the collapse of Building 7, "the Salomon Brothers Building" as it is/was known.

At 1:17 Jane Standley steps out of the shot saying, "As you can see behind me ..."

Look in the upper right hand corner.

IT'S STILL STANDING.

I repeat.

WTF?

 

 

Now, here's some footage from the ground.

You have your basic New York City cop moving people back from the site while clearly telling them "The building is about to blow up"

I'll agree with anyone that this particular bit of footage isn't evidence of much, but to say "blow up" rather than "fall down" gets my attention.

 

 

Finally, you get this site.

 

 

It's my opinion that these guys probably aren't knuckleheads.

 

Thanks to Elizabeth K for pointing us at this whole thing.

 

A Bible story and an Aristotle quote for your consideration.

To quote Aristotle for real this time,
