No matter how hard you try, you cannot turn away from the events, the reality, the horror and devastation of 9/11 as the United States of America knows it. Remembers it. Feels it. Lives it.
You, like myself, may think or want to think you have put it at bay, put it in check and dealt with it and moved on. Yes, we DO continue to live our lives. To work, to shop, to do business, to entertain and vacation, to LOVE and share LOVE. As you stare at, listen to and see the faces of President Bush and Laura Bush, you cannot help to feel the pain once again course through you. That is ok, that is who we are. THAT, is what makes us and our Souls even stronger.
But, as you watch today, this 10th Anniversary of 9/11 as we know it, you cannot help but to let the tears well up in your eyes, the emotion boiling inside you.
Yes, We the citizens of the United States of America are a resilient people. Strong and Brave, yet calm and comforting, solid, stable.
Those who attack us will not sway us or take away who we are. You cannot take away what is deep within our very souls.
Those who have attacked us, You have not won. You will not win. Ever.
Why? Because you are on the wrong side of Good and Evil.
To those who have attacked us, the USA. Let this be crystal clear to you…. The pain you have inflicted upon us as citizens of the United States of America only makes our resolve, our cores, our will and our determination stronger.
The Truth is, We will NEVER Forget.
In Jesus’s name. Amen.
