in a world defined as post-9/11, i believe that it is important that we look back to the amazing coming together of all americans immediately after september 11, 2001. we were all still the same folks we were the day before, but now, we were moreso american than ever before. we were banded together, those who usually fought, to fight against the real enemy of terrorism, to bring hope, comfort, and friendship to the lives of those dealing with loss.
today, i encourage you to find a way back to that sense of community that we had all across this country. just for a moment, if we can all think in terms of love, joy, happiness, and beauty, we can make a difference. and remember the small differences are often a bigger deal than the so called big differences.
