I don’t like this day. I don’t like the memories of the many deaths, some of which were caught on camera. I don’t like thinking of the horror of the events this day 22 years ago.

I hate the fact far too many lost an important part of their family. I hate that it was hate which denied these people a chance at a future.

But, I remember, too, how neighbors came to the aid of those they didn’t know. How we turned to one another to comfort and be comforted. How untold numbers of men and women ran toward danger to help others, to help strangers.

We’ll never forget what happened 22 years ago, nor should we. We must remember the gut-wrenching terror and heartbreaking sorrow, the astonishing heroism and tender outpouring of love, and the tragedy that forever changed the world.



  1. I just hope the next generation knows…

  3. Long time, no blog. Thought I’d stop by and see if you’re still around. Had some pretty good discussions with a now 14yo AJ about the events of that horrible day, so he will know. Even got to listen to a speaker at church who was present at ground zero on that morning (sales meeting at the Marriott Hotel, right between the two towers) and was very fortunate to escape with his life, as well as two colleagues who followed him out of the madness.

    And was really touched how AJ, out of the innocence and purity of his heart, told me he would’ve tried to save as many people as he could if he were there that day.

    I sometimes take for granted how blessed I am to have him around.
