may we remember…

never forget.

may we remember our initial unity, our empathy, our compassion even amid the horror of that day.

may we remember that caught up in fear, we give rise to selfish individualism, anger, aggression and hate. these feed division and opportunity for unscrupulous people in power, people in our country currently bent on moving toward authoritarianism rather than preserving and flourishing our representative democracy.

if we truly want to honor the victims of 9/11, the lives lost since, and our humanity, we must reject ideologies of division, lies, aggression, cruelty and hate we are bearing witness to and perhaps even participating in. 

may truth, open-heartedness, empathy, and compassion prevail.

hope and healing live on in the words and works of those who serve love.
