Blogging Boomers Carnival #130

It is always such a privilege to host the Blogging  Boomers Carnival.  This time, on my turn, the carnival falls just a few short days after 9/11 and a few of my co-bloggers sent thoughts regarding this remembered day.  As for me, I was looking back on old posts and will refer you to my post from 9/11 last year.

9/11 was a solemn period for our country followed by national grief. Hopefully we won’t be forced to endure another such tragedy in our lifetimes. On a personal level, however, loss is inevitable as is the resulting grief. In response, two new books have come out exploring how to deal with the sadness of the loss of a loved one.  Both are addressed at LifeTwo.

 Ann Harrison, Contemporary Retirement, from across the pond, shares her remembrances of that day, and some lovely thoughts about the day of service.  On a practical note, I also want to share with you her tips on how to use Facebook when you’re over 50

SoBabyBoomer says that vastly more Americans believe in flying saucers and 9/11 conspiracy theories than believe in the notion of balanced mainstream news media.  That’s why they check out specialty blogs to find out what’s happening now.

If you are a fashionista who’d like to spread the message of peace, then visit Fabulous after 40 for the chance to win a Peace Yoga Tote bag from the Glam Gals. It’s their way of honoring those brave souls who gave their lives in 911.
