Sunday, September 11

Remembering September 11, 2001

I was a director at the Boys and Girls Club. I sat glued to the television from mid-morning on. I remember thinking as the kids trickled in after school and curled up around me on the couch, on the floor - pulled up their  chairs...

How could anyone hurt innocent souls?

May all of us remember with love and compassion this day.
May we grieve with those who still mourn,
And share memories with those who cannot forget.
May we draw strength from those who bravely responded,
And gave their lives to save others.
May we stand with strangers who became neighbors that day,
And remember their generosity and hospitality.
Above all God may we remember your faithfulness
And learn to trust in your unfailing love.

I'll be back tomorrow with more giveaway fun... but for today I will be remembering.

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “
- President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
