Today is 911. Today we remember those who rushed in to help others. Today we remember the innocent who were killed across this country during hateful attacks. And today we should remember exactly what hatred feels like and eliminate it from our consciousness. Words like kill, attack, wage war, battle, fight, reclaim are all lost words, they are words of hatred and war and no one wins.
No one, in any country, deserves to die like those on 911 did. No one who is working in the service of others should ever die in any country while coming to give aid to those in need. We must remember this each and every time we choose hatred and war.
I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes. "War does not determine who is right, war only determines who is left!"
Remember those we lost today, and remember that it is through hatred and division that we will continue to lose those we love and that's never a sustainable solution!
