September 11, 2001: We Remember

By September 11, 2005Miscellaneous

Sep11.jpgOn this fourth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, we all pause to remember our countrymen lost in that tragedy and the heroism and loss of the many folks who worked to rescue the survivors and worked tirelessly around the clock to ease the suffering of so many. Here’s a piece we wrote a month later, interesting now to read in retrospect, written from the perspective of one of the targeted cities. And here’s a piece written on the one year anniversary entitled, “Ora et Labora“, reminding us to pray as we worked, to remember those who are lost, but to remember them — and to honor them — as we soldiered on. As Faulkner said, “Man will not only endure, he will prevail”, and prevail we will.

We hope you’ll take a moment today to remember those who fell that day, to stop and say a prayer for them and for their loved ones who every day go through life without them and who every day are reminded of their loss. We will not forget those who fell, will keep them in our prayers — ordinary people, heroes all.
