Whether you are an American and are mourning the tragedy that occurred on 9/11/01, or you live in another country and this event is foreign to you, I encourage us all to take a day and remember our pasts.
History is weighed heavy with tragedies… most of them so “far away” we grow numb to them. Do not grow numb. Do not forget. History is very much alive because we are currently making it. There is wisdom to be found from the past.
And I don’t know about you guys, but this world is quickly falling.
We have justified murder when it was once a thing to be wept over.
And that’s what happens when we forget. When we forget the past and become numb to it, anything can happen. Terrible things can be accepted… as we’re doing now.
The only hope for this world is US. You. Me. Stop forgetting. Stop ignoring. Stop sitting idly. The world needs us. God needs us to act as His servants, as His bold lions of courage, not as scared sheep who beg to be saved from the pain we have caused.
