But the heart does not forget.
The mind plays the images over and over: two tall burning buildings, clouds of smoke, ash-smeared faces, terror-stricken targets, the jumpers.
Each precious life lost; each life left behind to endure a lifetime of unending sorrow.
History will always remember. We will always honor you. Your lives (and deaths) were not in vain.
Let’s embrace a new promise. One of peace and hope. A world where differences dissolve and our human connection prevails. Where love is the global language.
Let’s leave a better legacy for our children. So 9/11 is a lesson we learn from, not repeat.
