Sept. 11, 2020 ~ Never Forget

 


September 11, 2001 ~ What is now known as Patriots Day.  To some it is just a history lesson, a day when we were attacked here, at home, on our own soil.  I remember watching the towers fall on that day.  I watched in silence and in horror, wondering who would do such a thing to innocent people that went into work after kissing their loved ones goodbye that morning.  I cried as did most of our country.  

We should never forget that horrible feeling of innocent lives taken, of innocence lost.  But the feeling I really am missing right now? The feeling of togetherness of a country.  We all came together as one in the aftermath of this tragic event.  Where did that America go?  I don't recognize where we are right now.  I know some of you may have seen times such as this, but where is all of the hate for other American's coming from?  John F. Kennedy said "Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer but the right answer.  Let us accept our own responsibility for the future."

We have come so far from that day 19 years ago, there has been so much change and now we are in a place I don't even recognize in our country.  I think this song says alot of what we need to do right now...  

Be a Light


In a time full of war, be peace
In a time full of doubt, just believe
Yeah, there ain't that much difference between you and me
In a time full of war, be peace

In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Don't hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light

In a place that needs change, make a difference
In a time full of noise, just listen
'Cause life is but a breeze, better live it
In a place that needs a change, make a difference

In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Oh, don't hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light

In a race that you can't win, slow it down
Yeah, you only get one go around
'Cause the finish line is six feet in the ground
In a race you can't win, just slow it down

In a world full of hate, be a light 
When you do somebody wrong, make it right (make it right)
Don't hide in the dark (don't hide in the dark), you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light

Yeah, it's hard to live in color, when you just see black and white
In a world full of hate, be a light
