Remembering 911


There are so many strong feelings about 911 and it reaches our deepest emotions. My prayer is that those who were affected by losing a loved one or injured in this unbelievable act of hate would find healing on this day.  I hope that we can show the world that we cannot be broken or divided.  It is such a shame that  many of the voices heard around the world are the voices of the extreme right or extreme left!  Why can't the voices of reason be heard over all the noise.

We must show our children that we can come together as a nation and deal with our problems, fears, and differences without hate, judgement, and bigotry.  We must show our children that we can disagree with how a problem  is resolved without getting into name calling and false accusations.  We must show our children that even though there was a 911 it has not destroyed our confidence in fighting for freedoms that our forefathers guaranteed all of us.  We must show our children that we can tolerate differences of religions, political views, or opposite opinions.  We must show our children that we are a country united and no one can take that away.  We must show our children that 911 was a tragedy that must never be repeated and will never be forgotten.  We all are responsible for what we show our children this day and in the future.

Very well said, Debra! I hope many come across your voice of reason here, especially on the anniversary of the 911 tragedy. We need this at a time when people seem to be more polarized than ever about it.
