Many of you are reading this on 9/11. Time has eased the blow, diminished the shock, and given us all time to come to terms with the myriad of changes these 12 years have brought. Let’s make a concerted effort to remember all the people who were lost on that day, in NYC, Pennsylvania and DC and not focus on the divisions that have sprung up since.

Think About This: "To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird’s nest or
a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life."
~ John Burroughs
