New York City - The World Trade Center's Twin Towers
Washington DC - The Pentagon
Shanksville, PA - A field...
2,977 heroes lost
A nation broken-hearted at the cruelty, the depth of evil...
As an American, as a Christian, as a citizen of the world, as a human being - I will always mourn this day. Yet, I also feel unbelievably proud of the first responders, those who rushed TO the danger... all those who gave their lives to save others. For the incredible men and women of Flight 93, I cried the hardest for you - so proud. I remember, through tears, raising my fist in the air and saying "YES!" because YOU stopped them. You gave your lives to STOP them... YOU won.
Thank you for that...
It is 'evil' we must hate. It is 'evil' we must fight against, resist, and refuse to accept. Sometimes evil does come in the embodiment of other human beings, but that should be as heart-breaking as anything because those souls are so so lost. They are deceived. Evil can be subtle in its brainwashing cascade. The words and commands that run through a mind and twist the truth. We are all susceptible to its lies... it's goal is to incite. It's goal is to create chaos. It's goal is to facilitate hatred.
Get angry at the evil... and vow to NEVER allow IT to win.
