Tomorrow we remember the tragic day America was heartbroken, where several thousand innocent Americans were lost in the World Trade Center bombings, dozens more lost on two other airliners, where from the homes of tens of millions of American families, from where our courageous, brave firefighters and police officers stood in response, to the candlelight vigils from Tiananmen Square, London, Paris, Sydney, South Africa, parts of the Middle East, all across the world, we were all joined together through the smoke and streams of tears we cried.

On this day, may we reflect on when the world all stood with us and learn the reminded lesson that we must all depend on each other, and we truly are one vast family, all brothers and sisters in spirit. I ask regardless of our political differences, religious beliefs, nationalities, or the difference of opinion we have in resolving the conflict after this tragic day, let us stand together and hug one another in spirit, and believe we will rise above as Americans, as brothers and sisters worldwide together in one great family, for there will always be spacious skies, for there will always be amber waves of grain, there will always be purple mountain majesties, there will always be alabaster cities gleaming, which I believe have only grown brighter with the several thousand angels made that day, guiding us all in spirit, having us believe as always "In God We Trust".

Let us set an example for our sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, and friends, and reach out to one another with arms wide open on this day, as we did the days following that very tragedy. I ask that all of us go out there today and perform at least one simple act of kindness and compassion today, for a simple act of kindness is like a blinking light in one of our alabaster cities, or the flashlight beaming through the darkness from a firefighter's hand to lead the way for each innocent bystander, or a candle that sways and burns brightly in each vigil.

Let us embrace one another, regardless of our differences, and together, we will always remember... )

God Bless America.


So you go and make it happen
Do your best, just keep on laughing
It's all on you, there's always a brand new day. -Avril Lavigne

Saturday we had a family reunion. My aunt planned it specifically for the 11th. As we stood, holding hands, over 100 of us, my aunt asked us to remember and be blessed by the fact that, although we have many members of our family in the service, and have had, we have only lost three of our family. Not in the war, but just losses like many families experience. We were quiet, and each and every one of us blessed the men and women who fight to give us a day in which to celebrate our family safely and without fear. Amen America

Beautifully said. Noah you are still so loving and caring.


God bless the world, and protect all humanity from the few who seek to destroy it.
