I’m writing this post on Tuesday, 9/11/18, seventeen years after the terrorist attacks on our country. I wrote about this event in last week’s post,
but I’m hard pressed to think of anything else today.
The bells ring.
We experience moments of silence.
The names of just less than 3000 people lost are read.
And I’m sad.
God bless all who lost friends and loved ones and managed to carry on. God bless all First Responders and the ordinary citizens who helped. And helped with no regard for who they were helping, no matter how different they might seem from the helper. As so many have said, in many ways, this tragic event brought out the best in all Americans.
And then we’ve got Florence bearing down on the North and South Carolina coasts, due to hit Thursday evening. And again, we see ordinary citizens pitching in to fill sand bags, working with government and First Responders to be prepared for what could be a devastating natural disaster.
So today, I want us to focus on our family and friends. Remember to say, I love you. And to say it often. Overlook whatever petty behaviors bother us and accept each other in all our uniqueness. Show love.
Whatever your special passion is, act on it.
What are you passionate about? What causes do you work for? Where do you give your money and time? Love to hear from you.
