Heartache


by Roger Pynn
I can remember like it was yesterday sitting in church the night of September 11, 2001.  My heart ached.
I will remember the same feeling Sunday sitting in front of a television 2,400 miles away in California where we had been for a conference.
There’s a sense of sadness that goes with all these terrible situations.  We’ve all experienced it too many times.
And yet you hear people say “I’m not going to let them win” or as our Mayor Buddy Dyer said “we’re not going to be defined by haters.”
They are so right.
Later as we flew home from Los Angeles we felt firsthand how powerful that attitude can be when our Delta flight attendant (a Downtown Orlando resident, himself) came through the cabin passing out “I Love Orlando” buttons.  It gave us something to say, something to smile about.
