That we can embrace the spirit of love, neighborliness, and compassion that so many demonstrated 10 years ago today.
That we can let go of the blind rage the attacks generated.
That we allow those who helped strangers that day, no matter their race, sex, religion, age, disability, or orientaiton, to inspire us to reach across such boundaries and see the beauty and goodness in every human being.
That we practice forgiveness, which is most important when it’s the hardest to do.
That we can find the empathy and generosity to help those who have less than we do, whether down the street or across the ocean.
That we refuse to let hate beget any more hate than it already has.

Thank you all, and thank you for giving me a space to express this. I feel weird calling it a prayer, since I’m not really religious, but that seemed like the only appropriate word.

What a beautiful prayer. I am not very religious either but I consider myself a very spiritual person. This definitely put things into perspective.
I had my dress fitting today and it was bitter sweet. I did not feel right being excited about getting married but realized life must go on.
We will never forget……
