September 11

As I was commenting on a post regarding 9/11, I was spurred to post the thoughts  on my own blog:

We will always remember those we have lost.

We’ll not forget the many heroic deeds on that day.

Just as deeply, I hope that we let go of anger and thoughts of retaliation. I hope we mourn the acts of terrorism everywhere in the world and remember that these acts are perpetrated by individuals, not by entire peoples.

I hope that when remembering this and other acts of terrorism perpetrated on our home soil, that we also remember those who have been affected by such acts in other countries…that are also perpetrated on home soil.

I hope that remembrance draws us ever closer to all people of the world as we mourn the loss of all victims of violence everywhere.
