Coming to you past midnight with Bobby softly snoring beside me, and I wide awake as usual.
[I wrote this post on 9/11, but fell asleep before posting it. Lucky you, it’s here now.]
Today sixteen years ago, the United States of America experienced a terrorist attack of unimaginable proportion. An unknown enemy hijacked three planes. Two beloved towers fell. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives. Fear spread throughout the nation while sorrow filled our hearts.
Incredibly, amidst this suffering a ray of light broke through the clouds. Coupled with this calamity came incredible acts of heroism. A strong sense of unity throughout the nation. A determined sense of resilience and hope.
As a young girl I did not understand the meaning or magnitude of the event at the time, but I did feel it.
Here on Live Great, I explore what it means to truly live greatly. The example of the men and women who ran towards the fire that day instead of away from it, who risked their lives to save a stranger’s, who gave all they had so that others may live – that is the supreme example of a life greatly lived.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
– John 15:13, KJV
Let us remember the patriots then and now. Military, first responders, and everyday citizens who live their life for others. Let us do the same in every way we can. We will never forget.
As always, live greatly my friends!
