The beauty and the beast

I took a walk at lunch today, and the weather was gorgeous. The cooler air is more appreciated after all the days of triple digit temperatures here in Texas.

While walking back from Baylor Medical Center, where I bought my lunch, the quiet beauty was interrupted by sirens. I suspected it announced the arrival of an ambulance at the hospital, but it seemed to be different. I immediately thought of the 9/11 terrorist attacks almost 10 years ago. I actually wondered if a new attack my be happening.

The sirens continued. I kept walking. Nothing seemed to be happening.

I suspect all of us have been changed by 9/11 when even a siren causes one to wonder.
