Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Today, I WON'T be thinking about the tragedy of 9/11, I won't think about where I was when I heard or remember the visions of people jumping to thier death. Today, I will remember what happened AFTER 9/11. I will remember our Congress men & women standing on the steps singing, "GOD Bless America"! I will remember that for a moment, ALL people in this nation LOVED one another! It didn't matter if you were Republican, Democrat or Independant, your color, sex, heritage or religion. Families, friends & enemies ALL stopped fighting! Because that days & few to follow, we were what our founding fathers dreamed we would be: ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE! We were not States, cities, districts, towns or counties....we were the UNITED States. How I pray that we can be like that again, without needing a tragedy, shooting, fire or terrorist attack....just because of LOVE!

    I was 37 weeks pregnant, with a toddler by my side, and my husband at work in the tallest building in the city. Had to be strong then, have to be strong now.

But it's true---United we stand, Divided we Fall. If only we could find unity and compassion again, despite perceived differences.

    Very wise - to have that kind of love for each other, that kind of unity, is something we need to be striving for EVERY day!
