(conclusion)The Wise of Understanding: a thought 9/11/11

(conclusion) 'The Wise of Understanding: a thought 9/11/11'

Because things don't make themselves.
Because people didn't create themselves.

Think beyond existentialism, Darwinism, scientific theories of evolotuion, procreation.

A car doesn't repair itself.
A newborn can't feed itself.
Counseling doesn't always work.
Surgery doesn't always heal.
War doesn't always mend.
Restitution isn't always the the resolution.

In general, so true.

on the 10th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on American cities,
the United States has risen above the ashes.
Look back a decade ago.
Then, look around the cities of New York, and Shanksville;
the Pentagon is still fulfilling its purpose.

It did not work!
It made us stronger!

We have united in support.
We have restored.
We have searched within ourselves for a greater meaning of existence.
We have asked the greater one to uphold us.
We have implored the wise to instruct us.
We have learned a better understanding of life.

The people, not the politics...
The families, not the disenfranchisements...
The courage, not the fear.
The purpose-filled existence, not senseless annihilation.
The unity, not the division.
The triumph, not the discouragement.
The love, not the hate.

God Bless America.

Generation 9/11
    For young people, the events of Sept. 11, 2001, were a defining epic, in the way that Pearl Harbor and John F. Kennedy's assassination were for their elders.

Pentagon Memorial Remembers 9/11 Attacks
Seven years after American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, the nation's first major memorial to the tragic events of 9/11... If the victim's nameplate on the bench can be read with the Pentagon in the background, the person died in the building. If the sky is in the background, the person died in the building.  If the sky is in the background, the person died aboard the plane.  An "age wall" slopes from three inches high for 3-year-old Dana Falkenberg to 71 inches high for 71-year-old John Yamnicky to represent the range of ages of the victims from youngest to oldest.  Underneath each bench is a small self-contained pool of trickling water.  Memorial co-designer Julie Beckman says the design is intended to evoke similar sentiments among other visitors to the new memorial. "This is where those 184 people, this was the last place that they lived. We wanted to make a place for people to come and remember, reflect, and renew." 

Positively Positive
Today we remember the nearly 3000 lives that were lost on 9/11. We salute those who are fighting for their lives and country. Let's also recognize the amazing unsung heroes in this amazing short film narrated by Tom Hanks. "Never go through life saying you should have. If you want to do something, do it".
