I'm not sure I'll spend a moment alive on this planet where this day doesn't leave me somber. However, in lieu of sadness, it's feelings of gratitude that I try to foster. While not always easy, thanking my lucky stars for all that I have - just feels better than reliving the nightmare and aftermath. Whatever your method to the madness may be - pin on your proverbial red carnation and move through this day thankfully.
