It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. And with apologies to Charles Dickens, we seem to be living those times again. It is a day for remembering the events of 15 years ago, and a day for remembering that good things happened as well, on this day of sadness and terror brought home. Happy birthday Cami. Sorry this day will forever be wrapped in sadness. We can only go forward from here, and hope that enough people remember that they could embrace what is good instead of building walls against what is bad, because that really doesn’t work, now, does it?.
And of course, pandas have a lot to say about this.
And a note about Wednesday’s post; we have invited a special guest to join us here at The Panda Chronicles! Our friend Hazel Mitchell, who we met at the Nevada SCBWI Mentor program last year, has a new book out this week about a special furry friend of hers. Pinky has agreed to interview Toby, which, frankly, I don’t know how this is going to work. Pinky PROMISED she would be nice to Toby, but “Pinky-Nice” may not exactly be anyone else’s definition of “nice”. Let’s just cross our fingers and hope for the best! Pinky Promise my eye!
Be the Bear!
