I found it really hard to write my thoughts today, so I thought I would keep it really short. What I will “Never Forget” from September 11, 2001.
I will never forget to pray for those who lost family and friends on this day.
I will never forget the heroes that ran into danger, and not away from it.
I will never forget the time when we all put our collective hopes and prayers together, for the safety and well-being of people we didn’t even know.
I will never forget the time when everyone asked, “Is there something I can do?”
I will never forget the time where so many people did so many little things, to create one large effort to care for our fellow citizens.
I will never forget to be prepared. To ask God now to give me the strength for the future, where I may need to run to and not from danger.
I wrote the above last year…and so I decided to revisit and see if what I want to “Never Forget” has changed. The only thing I could think of was to add one thing.
I will never forget that hate breeds hate. Love is not only our best defense, but the only offense we have.
