As September 11th approaches, I hear people say “Never Forget”. I lost a friend, the father of a former student as well as my neighbor’s brother. I freaked when I saw the new and smoking skyline from the Whitestone bridge the following week. I will never forget the fear, the pain, the anger, but I will not blame any one group for the act of a few. What I will never forget is that our country was founded on freedom and liberty and justice for all. What I will try to forget is the bigotry and separation that propaganda and the press create. On this 9/11 I will hold the highest intention that we are one and that only though love can we create PEACE and change. Love and blessings of peace and brother/sister-hood to all, especially those personally touched by this tragic day.
