Today is the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. , and it’s been a day to reflect and honor those who died in a senseless act of hate.
For me, this day has been a time to make some personal resolutions. To observe the acts of courage and kindness around me, to ensure that meanness and hate do not distract me from remembering the power that love has to inspire ordinary people to do remarkable things.
I’m starting today by collecting and posting those acts of courage, kindness, giving and love. It may be words of encouragement (words are powerful), the courageous actions of strangers, those who inspire us to help others, or a random act of kindness. These aren’t usually the stories that make headlines, but they happen every day, in my neighborhood, and across the world. I hope to collect one story or thought each week as a reminder to myself that each act of courage, no matter how small, is a very powerful antidote to hate.
This is my evening news -Love creates Love.
