This Week...Time to Remember, Honor, and Come Together
It is hard to believe that twenty years have passed since that horrible day. We can all remember where we were and for me, the numbness I felt as I watched what was happening.
We cannot forget and yet it’s important that we move forward. I can remember a few days after 9/11 when Larry made us leave the house just to get some fresh air and get away from watching the news.
Moving forward doesn’t mean moving on or forgetting but moving through and taking with us what we’ve learned.
What helped me was seeing what we as a people...as a nation...can do when we come together.
Lending a hand when one is needed...Putting aside our differences when it matters...Showing kindness to people we’ve never met.
Lately, I wonder if anyone remembers that. We seem at times to have lost our way.
Remember that the differences we have real or perceived can strengthen us if we open our hearts and minds.
We need to UNITE…
Uphold the freedoms that this country was built on
Never forget that our greatest strength as a country lies within all of us
Inspire those around you through the kindness you show them
Thank all who continue to serve our country and sacrifice for our freedoms
Erase the negativity in your life and focus on what you have.
Remember, Honor, and Come Together This Weekend.
