Never forget. Two simple words we’ve all heard many times before. Sometimes though, words can lose meaning with time if we are not reminded of why the sentiment exists in the first place. This tribute may just cover a few of the thousands of stories tied to that fateful day in September, 2001, but I believe they all deserve to be told and re-told. These stories, in part, will help us continue to remember why we should never forget. Your story will too.
This month, September 2011, marks the ten year anniversary of 9/11. I encourage you to use this time as a moment for reflection – to recall where you were that day and share your story with others. Our world, in many ways, is very different from the way that it was ten years ago. In many other ways, it is very much the same. Today we face new challenges, much as we did then, that cannot be solved with just one answer. While I recognize that our world moves at a pace that is hard to even keep up with - perhaps if we all pause for just a moment to reflect and ask ourselves how we each can help make the world a better place, we will find the answers we are looking for.
NOTE: While we believe in the right for political discourse, this is not the forum for it. We ask that you please keep comments respectful and on topic. Thank you.
