9/11/01 Remembered

Today is the 8th anniversary of 9/11. The news this morning had an article on the fact that many school children are too young to remember. None of my grandchildren, oldest 10, remember.

How do we keep this in perspective? Not too many of us remember Pearl Harbor any more. Is that good, given the changes in the world since? Should we always remember and if yes, how?

"On 9/11, day of mourning becomes day of service"

This was the headline on Comcast's article this morning How do we apply this statement?
I'd really like to hear from you on this.

  1. My kids are 23 and 25 now and I still don't think the day made the impression on them that it did on me. I told them at the time they would never know a world without terrorism and the possibility of it on our own soil. For me - it changed my life. It taught me how I feel about my country and what is most important to me in my life. As far as a day of service goes, I'm not fond of President Obama and am likely as not - to not listen to his suggestions. I believe it should be a day of remembrance and beyond that - what gives the day meaning for you is how you should observe it.
