9/11 A Day of Remembrance

On September 11, we will be celebrating my daughter‘s 23rd birthday.

Johnny and Holly Shapiro, the downs-syndrome couple at Fitness SF, will be celebrating 18 years of marital bliss.

Many people will be celebrating positive happenings in their lives. And to this, I cheer.

Nationally this day has a much more eminent and somber meaning.

We all know what happened.

Where were you on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, around 8:45 am EST?

I’ll bet most of us know exactly where we were when we heard the news of the World Trade Center and Pentagon terrorist attacks on America.

I’m not going to get into the horrific particulars of this heinous event, but would rather focus on the way such a disaster can bring a country together, at least for a while....

Americans are proud to be American and to defend our right to be free.

September 11 is sometimes called “Day of Service and Remembrance”, an annual day for many Americans to remember, serve, honor, and mourn.

How have the events of 911 affected your life?

Let us reflect on our lives in the past 21 years and how we have grown, changed, and have become more aware, afraid, and brave.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that

- Martin Luther King Jr.
