A Time to Remember

A wise man once said, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace..."
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

It is appropriate to remember the tragedy and the heroism, the sacrifice and the victory, the destruction and the miracles of that day. For, if there ever was a day in our lifetimes when evil and righteousness clashed in a tangible way, it surely was

Let us always make the time to remember.
