Good morning.

Solemn day today as we remember the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centers, the Pentagon, and Flight 93 that crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania as its passengers tried to take back the flight from hijackers.

I remember how unified we were in those weeks and months following these attacks.  Unified in grief.  Unified in anger.  Unified in commitment to justice.  We’re doing things today that are tearing us apart.  The way we put simple labels on others and find reasons be angry at each other over bullshit.

Today, let’s set that aside.  Remember how we held hands in silence and remembered those who died innocently on this day 19 years ago.  Let’s be kind to each other today.  And again tomorrow.  We need to draw together, or this nation we love will suffer more.  United, we stand.  Divided, we fall.

I was going to have short talk about another topic today, but it just doesn’t feel right.  So I’ll hit it on Monday.

Be grateful today.  Be kind today.  Be human today.  Love each other.

Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
