9/11

September 11, 2022

Let us pause and remember

A few evil people acted that day, 21 years ago, but millions acted out of bravery and kindness and showed the world that goodness can overpower evil. I was in my art classroom the morning of 9/11 when the news came through. I was horrified and was reminded that not all of us do what is right for other human beings.

I watch this video each year on this date to remind me of the importance of compassion and not to be so only when there is a tragedy but everyday. The challenges that people experience throughout our world must be combatted with a little kindness to each other.

There were many stories of bravery that day but I am forever moved by the community of boat owners and captains who put others first and their acts made a difference! Everyone who participated in the search and rescue operation on 9/11 and the days following is a true hero. Never Forget the lives lost on this tragic day or the heroes that emerged from it.
