Thank you for supporting me. Because of increased interest, the blog has moved. Please follow this link. 

After a hard day at work or a difficult day with the children I could easily let my mood take a dive. Instead, I choose to look at a photo that puts everything back in perspective.

This photo is taken from the old immigration station of Ellis Island. The building is the one into which all new immigrants were taken for processing and quarantine. Between 1892 and 1924 about 20 million immigrants went through here after risking their lives to escape persecution.

To further eradicate any bad mood, the buildings seen through the window are part of the 9/11 Memorial built to remember and honor the 2,983 men, women and children killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.

And suddenly, my problems seem quite insignificant. Isn't it remarkable what a bit of perspective can bring?
