On this day let us not forget. War does not solve problems. It creates more. Anger is okay but it will not resolve the hurt you feel. Sadness is a part of grieving but it does not bring back that which is gone. We must move forward create positives out of these negatives.
Resolve to become the change we want to see in the world. To follow the most important rule: treat others as you would like to be treated. Sept. 11th changed all of us in this nation of ours and nations through out the world. For me I became more politically active then I’d ever been. It open my eyes to the world as a whole.
Finally, I remember those that gave their lives, that lost their lives, but because they did I have a greater sense of self and a greater love for the country I call my home.
I send a prayer to anyone who lost loved ones that day. I send a prayer of peace that our troops may come home to their families. I send a prayer of hope that our country will live up to being a republic and represent all people. And I send a prayer of love to each and every person in the world.
Peace, Joy, & Love
