In times like these — the divisive days of a presidential election — we would do well to remember all that brought us together after the tragedy of 9/11. We were devastated, but not destroyed. We pulled together as a nation, along with the prayers of allies all over the world, to heal from our horrific national wounds. In our time of greatest loss, we healed.
Yet, today we still face the demons of terror and violence. We still feel fear. We are still in need of healing.
One calling that we all share is our work as healers. Each one of us, in our own way, in our own circle of life, is given moments when we can heal what is before us. It is not hard for us to recognize these moments. We see them clearly. The hurt between human hearts, the pain of past memories, the conflict between friends, the need of our Earth to be respected: there are a steady stream of chances for you and I to be active in mending what is broken around us. From the greatest need to the smallest, we are the work crew of the holy. We repair the world, one blessing at a time. – Bishop Steven Charleston
In memory of 9/11 and in honor of those who lost their lives, let us join hands and heal the world.
