September 11 - We Remember

There She Stands.

No matter how you feel about where our government has taken us since 9/11/01...
No matter what your political leanings...
No matter your religious beliefs...

This is a time to reflect - to hug our loved ones - and say a prayer for the souls that were lost in that tragedy.

Strive to protect our freedoms and liberties and our principles as a nation.
Work to restore the intentions of our Founders.
Honor those who were lost by doing something kind or charitable today.

We should remember these thoughts as well:

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. - Thomas Jefferson

But if we are to be told by a foreign Power ... what we shall do, and what we shall not do, we have Independence yet to seek, and have contended hitherto for very little.
- George Washington, letter to Alexander Hamilton, May 8, 1796

What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man. This is the law: all the rest is commentary. - The Talmud

Thanks for the reminder and the beautiful bit from You Tube. In this busy week, we did take some time to remember and to talk about our memories. The sorrow is still fresh enough to bring tears, even after 6 years...
