Ever year I write a note on this day, for it has an odd double meaning for me. While I tried to find my words I lost a lot of time trying to find a fancy graphic to go with them, then I realized the words or the graphic do not really matter on this day of days. Twelve years ago an act of terrorism first shook this nation and then united it. Now twelves years later I feel we as a nation are even further apart than ever, with rampant hate, denial of rights that are being cheered and a general feeling that we have all lost our way. This is how I feel, and although I do not have the answers all I can ask is you remember 9-11, celebrate our freedoms, do not give them away lightly and try to be most excellent to each other…
For me 911 holds a lot of different meanings from those that you would normally have. What I will say this is a reminder to us all to remember the Heroes those that ran in when others ran out and to celebrate your life. Be thankful for what you, have those that protect us in your mind for Freedom isn’t free, it must be held onto firmly with white knuckles with both hands, do not give it up for the promise of security, for well-being, it must always be watched over and protected… For in this land you are born free with the most unique document that protects you. Never give it up ever… Lest we forget we will be doomed to repeat history… Always remember… Always… Be gentle with the Earth now!
