I can remember it like it was yesterday.
In astonishment and horror, I sat in my office with my eyes fixated on the TV, observing the collapse of Manhattan’s iconic Twin Towers.
At that moment, I had no clue what was taking place.
Eventually, we were made aware.
Evil had delivered one of its most significant blows to our great nation.
Our country mourned and grieved.
We became united…
We shared love…
We observed courage…
…like never before…
Here we are twenty-two years later.
We are still fighting evil.
Our country pledged never to forget 9/11/01, but we forgot somewhere along the way.
Hate and division (both tools of evil) is the rule of the day.
Somehow, we’ve been conned into believing if you aren’t choosing sides, you aren’t American…so says evil.
Truth has gone out the window for millions of Americans.
As Christ-followers, it’s up to us to hold onto the Truth and spread the good news regardless of all the hate and division that’s attempting to infiltrate the lives of our friends and neighbors.
On this twenty-second anniversary of the most horrific attack ever on our great nation, do something kind for someone.
Hate cannot coexist with kindness.
Life is short.
There is no time for hate.
When forced between being right and being kind…choose kind. (R.J. Palacio)
Micah 6:8, “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
