9/11 Service Day

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

I have no words on this day just as I had none 12 years ago. Making any contribution is a good way to deal with this difficult day. I found several sources suggesting a community service in honor of the heroes and victims of 9/11.

9/11 Day is the non-profit movement to observe September 11 every year as a day of charitable service and doing good deeds. We created this observance soon after 9/11 to provide a positive way to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks, and remind people of the importance of working more closely together in peace to improve our world. Today millions participate annually by taking time out on 9/11 to help others in need, in their own way. emoticon

    I will never, ever forget 9/11 and what it was like watching those towers come down, over and over, on TV. This past April I visited the memorial in NYC, and was so unbelievably moved by it. So many lives lost, and for what? Life is too precious to throw away.

    A day that must be remembered by all. We have services here, too. Canada will never forget.

    I was up this morning at that exact time when they did the moment of silence. Emotional scenes of the families holding the pics of their loved ones. I felt so sad, as I did then. Such a terrible tragedy. Thanks for the tribute! emoticon emoticon

    A stark reminder 9/11 is of the mentality of some foreign countries.
We will not let them break us!
