While it might seem cliche given that almost every social media post today as had this phrase, it is important that the events of 9-11-2001 not be forgotten. Thousands of people lost their lives that day in a senseless act of violence. Our world is completely different now; that fateful day changed the way that we as Americans view the world and the threats leveled against us. This does not mean that we do not have hope. We cling to the hope that new day will come. We cling to the hope that a new era of peace will come. As a follower of Christ, I cling to the notion that Christ’s ultimate message of rooted and grounded in love, peace, and justice.
17 years have passed since that morning.
May we never forget.
