Together we remember that on 9/11 and the days surrounding, our country was the perfect image of brotherly love. There was no division, we were all Americans.
As this difficult day “9-11” comes around each year, we take a moment to say “thank you”. “Thank you” to those who helped others, to those who sacrificed, to those who encouraged. In their stories, we find comfort in knowing that we have each other’s backs.
‘Amazing Grace’ is the perfect song to sing as we reflect back on that day. May we never forget and continue to pray for our nation each and every day.
This day is hard for so many of us, we pray that you will find peace and comfort in your community. Our hope is that in remembrance we will strive to respect and be compassionate to others.
