Our great nation has been having its fair share of troubles lately. In addition to all the distress, it seems as though the people in this country are splitting down the middle… further and further apart. We have a tendency to point out the ways in which we are different.
But regardless of all of that, I am still very thankful, and feel extremely fortunate, to be living in a country that affords me so many rights and privileges.
In light of all that…
I think that if we could start seeing how we are alike…If we could understand our sameness with others… if we could work on our ability to discover what is good in one another… perhaps….
We could make things change. For the good.
….And, in recognition of this disconsolate and historic date… a moment of silence for all of the victims of September 11th, 2001.
