Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim the spirit of unity that followed 9/11. – Barack Obama
Seventeen years ago men and women were going to work in New York, Washington DC and Shanksville, PA. They were Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Atheist, LGBTQ, straight and other…all humans. On September 11th they had no idea what was about to happen. All they were doing is making a living and supporting their families and communities. It was just another day.
Then four planes proceeded to enact a plan that would forever change the world. America changed. America was attacked. Some lost their lives, some lived. We all suffered in one way or another as a nation. I remember people came together and we rallied together. We had friends around the world who came to our aid. We waved the flag to bring us together.
It’s been a long time since that day in September. Wounds remain, wounds have healed but that day will be marked as a historic event for years to come.
Hope and pray for peace so that nothing like this event will happen again.
