With the 18 anniversary of the tragedy at the World Trade Center in NYC behind us, it causes me pause. Pause to remember the intensity of feelings and reactions surrounding this horrific act. My reaction and the reaction of all of those around me reached pinnacles of dis-belief I had never experienced before. Shock, dis-belief, anger, fear, and eventually profound sadness and empathy as we began to hear the numbers of those affected by it.
We were Ill prepared for that profound and monumental event. Our reactions lasted days, weeks, months, years and to those affected most closely, it still exists. In our lives we have moments of profundity, moments where we are tested, pushed, prodded and moved. We will continue to struggle and learn, grow and be strong, find hope and love even in its midst. We will.
“Blessings on your journey”
