Forgotten Lessons: Remembering a Nation Unified Post 9-11, 2001
There were no Democrats in that circle that day. No Republicans or conservatives. No right wing fanatics or leftist idiots. There were no deplorables or social justice warriors or Trumpublicans or members of “The Resistance.” Only American children of God gathered as one and reaching out in the agony of shared sadness for simple truths and kinship to transcend confusion.
We were all Americans on that day and for a long time after. My prayer today, in history’s long ugly shadow of the twin towers, is not just that we remember 9-11 and those who died. But that someday, we will all find a way to journey back again to that golden September Sunday that followed and that with similar humility, contrition, healing and forgiveness, with hearts open to each other and laid bare before our God, we will all be Americans again.
