Deeply Personal Remembrance

Fourteen years have passed… and our remembrance of 9/11 has evolved into a personal experience.  In years past, we sought to remember collectively, leaning on each other during the difficult times.  Time heals imperfectly and 9/11  should now be honored and remembered on an individual level.

National Memorial

Personal remembrances are the next step… toward healing, but we cannot forget the victims.  Foolish conspiracy theories and fraudulent academics have done much damage to the American spirit.  A national call to marginalize those who choose to ignore the victims and their loved ones should be our next goal.   The selfless actions of the first responders represent what is truly good about our people.  On this 9/11, take a minute to remember the victims and first responders…..and forget those who embarrass themselves claiming to seek truth.
