Twelve years ago, I sat transfixed to the TV, crying all day long. My kids were 4, 6, and 8-- and I wondered what kind of world they would have ahead of them.
I've since learned we create our own world with every act of kindness and every loving thought.
It's quite simple, really. Begin your day with gratitude. Reach out to someone who is hurting. Do something for someone else without expecting something in return.
And one more thing, choose words which build up, not tear down-- a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11.
