It's been 17 years since the 9-11 attacks. Even though the pain of losing so many lives STINGS badly. It's a perfect time to honor them by  Volunteering or doing an #ActofKindness for others. Making September 11 a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Promoting community service on 9/11 as a tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors and those who helped save many lives in response to the attacks. It was an extremely Sad day, but it was also a day where Americans band together and helped each other through the fallout. Remember where you were when the plans hit the Twin Towers. Think about the day you had 17 years ago.... 

Volunteer    Act of Kindness

There were over 13,000 kids who were born on September 11, 2001. It's a mixed bag of feelings & emotions for their Happy 17th birthday! It's a Happy Day because they came into the world, but many lost family / friends. Keep them in mind when you're helping others. 

Every year I share this poem I found that was written by Christine Morrison, a 4th grader at the time. She sent it to President Bush, and received a special letter back from First Lady Barbara Bush.  Dear Abby ended up publishing it.  May we remember & honor those who lost their lives 17 years ago. 

The Dust of September

The dust, the smoke, the clouds
from the dust of September

The sadness, the sorrow, the darkness
from the dust of September

The pretty sites are gone, the love, the death
from the dust of September

The families, the lives taken away
from the dust of September

Our country is sad, but our country still stands
from the dust of September

Our flag still waves
through the dust of September

We will never break, we will stand together
through the dust of September

People hurt, hearts broken, but we survive
in the dust of September

 Be Thankful for each moment we have with our Loved ones. Try our Best each day to be Nice to each other. Be a Proud American showing our Courage, Strength and Compassion! Wave our Flags HIGH!
