13 Years

13 years to mourn

Yet the grief is still as real

13 years to heal

Yet the wounds remain fresh

13 years to feel

Yet we see compassion turn to contempt

 

They say Never Forget

Tell me? How could We?

Always Remember?

Yet some memories continue to fail

 

Take a step back today

Pause from your agenda

Your propaganda

Remember what is truly important

Not politics or bickering

Certainly not hate

 

13 years to the day

Remember love

Remember sympathy

Allow yourself to feel

 

13 years to the day, remember to pray for those irreparably broken

    Oh yes, I could I forget. I remember waking up and my mom calling me to see the news. Truly horrifying.
    Today is also my hubby’s birthday. What a date to be remembered eh.

        That’s good to not have such a heaviness 🙂

        Yes I am from the UK, my wife I got engaged at the end of the August right before 9/11. Even though I wasn’t directly involved it deeply affected me & always will. Somehow with it being right after I had decided to move to the US it was more personal for me than other incidents.

        I wrote a post on it last year:
