Dona Nobs Pacem


I watched the memorial dedication for the people that were killed on 9/11. It is hard to imagine that any one could harbor such hate for America that they would plot our demise. What I saw today reaffirmed my faith. We will not be beat by any one or any thing. I see strength in the faces of those survivors. No matter how hard the enemy tries, they can't take away who we are, and our freedom.

The common thread is love. I see several generations healing together. Grand mothers and grand fathers helping their families heal from this horrible act of violence, adults helping their children. In return, I see those little children healing from the love of their families and community. I know we are going to be OK because we are strong and because we live in a nation where when something tragic happens everyone unites together to help one another. I've seen it over and over in the face of adversity and tragedy. It is who we are. It is what separates us from those that would want to hurt us.

I pray that no enemy harms us ever again. I pray that we will all be safe. I pray for our heroes that gave their lives that morning to rescue others. I pray for the survivors, those rescue workers that can't get those horrible images out of their heads. I can't imagine what they saw, or felt that day and the following months. They are amazing. They sacrificed themselves to clear and rebuild the World Trade Center and the amazing memorial areas. Their lives will never be the same again.

I am so thankful that America does not have evil in their hearts, but compassion for our fellow man. I don't want to live in any other place in the World, especially, where there is no value of life.

I watched the show on Nat Geo. It was split up into many parts, lasting about 6 hrs. It was beautiful and sad. Going to NYC in a few weeks and can not wait to see the Memorial with my own eyes.
Peace to you today and always! :)

Peace begins here...it is only when it truly resides at home that we can share it with the world. It is then that we will have no enemies.
