Farewell, September!

Today we kiss yet another month goodbye.

We only have three months left in the year. Amazing, right? It feels like we were just ringing in 2016.

And there was certainly no shortage of headlines in September.

It saw the presidential race heat up, with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump edging ever closer to election day.

Unfortunately, we witnessed bombings in New York and New Jersey; thankfully, no one was hurt. Eight people did sustain injuries in a stabbing attack at a Minnesota mall, for which ISIS has claimed responsibility.

Other stories included the untimely death of Marlins pitcher José Fernandez, who was killed in a boating accident in Miami; Congress overriding President Obama's veto of a bill that will allow the families of people who died on 9/11 to sue Saudi Arabia; and controversial police shootings in North Carolina and Oklahoma that sparked riots in both states.

I'm hoping October will be more tranquil and less dramatic than September was. Something tells me Donald Trump will see to it that that doesn't happen.

Oh, well. At least we can count on one thing this coming month: cooler weather!

Do you think this was a September to remember? If so, in good ways or bad?
