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. 

 

 

remember

 

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. 



 “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”  Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl.


“September 11 is one of our worst days but it brought out the best in us. It unified us as a country and showed our charitable instincts and reminded us of what we stood for and stand for.”  Lamar Alexander

I could not agree more. When I see divicive speaches like the one Mr. Biden gave two days ago, I wonder if he feels the same way?

Wayne Martin there are those who would like to see a division but I'm going to keep the faith. (and fingers crossed)

Nina Hollander, Broker when we meet people individually, the kindness is still there but there does seem to be a lot of divisiveness.

Michael Jacobs we have to unite to succeed...that doesn't mean that we all have to walk around thinking the same thing though. 

That is so true Brian England  We cannot be like sheep!!!

faye schubert I agree with you. We are stronger when we come together. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel thank you. That's how I felt after days of watching the events. I felt a  sense of pride at how we all came together.

UNITE - this is so perfect for this day and these times.  We are flying our flag today and sadly not many others are doing so.  I think many have forgotten which is sad, very sad.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker we have ours out too. There are many on our block who subscribe to a school group that earns money by placing flags ou on holidays. The flags were placed before Labor Day and we were happy to see that they kept them up through today.

Hi Kathy Streib - I remember how united we were the days following.  I also remember how quiet the sky was except for the occasional twin fighter jets sweeping through Southern California at a low altitude of around 1500 feet... it was extremely eery.

Morning Kathy.

Unity has left the building, I'll leave well enough alone before I write something I'll be banned for later.

Hi Kathy:

Yesterday was a somber day as my wife as I reflected back on this tragedy 20 years ago. Time has not lessened the pain and horror of those events or the aftermath.

I wish there was a way America could once again reach inside itself and tap that feeling of coming together that we had after 9/11.  We need it now, more than ever!  Perhaps we need a movement to restore that feeling, as tribute to those who lost their lives that fateful day!
