OT - 9/11
In rememberance of the tragedy of 9/11, please take a moment to reflect.
There was shock and horror and heartwrenching pain.
There was no race, no religion, no politics.
A nation came together. We were all brothers and sisters rushing to the aid of our extended family - America and its people. Supplying shelter, food, water, money, time. Holding a stranger's hand or hugging them to give the only thing we could - compassion and comfort.
I realize not everyone on this site was affected by this catastrophe, but there is a deeper message. We all have our hurts. Don't try to make someone else hurt so you have a companion in pain. Reach out to comfort, not to incite or anger. Words have power - please use them wisely.
Love and peace,
