Twenty Years Ago Today

Time is such an interesting concept as sometimes it goes by very quickly and at others, it seems to plod along slowly. As with many anniversaries, today is one of remembrance and I wanted to honor those who we lost on September 11, 2001 and those who we lost subsequently because of this heart wrenching tragedy.

Many of us know exactly where we were when we first heard the unbelievable news. Especially being a Jersey Girl and so close to NYC, we felt the fear, the grief and the hole in our lives in different ways. As I gazed up at the clear blue sky this morning while drinking my coffee and listening to the peaceful sounds of nature, I prayed because it was a morning such as this that changed so many lives in ways that nobody could have dared to imagine.

Even so many years later, I am stilled by this anniversary. Does it affect you as well?

One of my favorite songs we sang at church when I was growing up was Let There Be Peace On Earth. While I was sitting outside this morning, the song came to me and the words nestled into my heart. So I had to share them with you in case you feel as if you’d like to sing along.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as our father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally

Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin 
With me (me)
With me

I’m sending heartfelt hugs to all of you. Please continue to shine your heartlights and share your loving kindness with those around you. Our world feels mighty heavy lately. Your beacons of heartlight shine so brightly and help us all to remember that we are not alone.

God Bless.

Shine On!
