September 11th, Love Over Hate

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

September 11th Window Memorial, November 2001, New York City

That day changed life across generations.  I remember the little blip that appeared in the upper right hand corner of my TV that night in Japan saying that there was a fire in the World Trade Center Towers.  I remember the feeling in my soul as life was turning inside out.  So long ago, but fresh in our hearts.

Today’s posting is livicated to all those whose hearts are filled with hate.  Why?  Because they need the love more than anyone else in the world.  Those that have allowed their hearts to blacken need love the most.  Those that promote hate and fear need to be shone love.  Only light can shine in the darkness.

The world needs to constantly be reminded of its wicked ways.  Those that have light need to share their light with others.

So on this eleventh year anniversary of September 11th keep the love in your heart.  Let others know there is love there.  Let the love shine brighter than all the darkness.

I pray that the day will come when the world is populated with love rather than hate.

 

Nine Years on The Confrontation Continues

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

There has been a distance of nine years since the Twin Towers in New York City came crashing to the ground, splitting the the American soul in two.  I journeyed to New York city in November of 2001 to attend the unveiling of my grandmothers headstone.  With camera in hand, I wandered the street, shooting, taking in the red white and the horror.  I saw the best and the worst of America on the island of Manhattan.

As the distance between the actual event and the memory of the event grow farther apart, how will America and the world remember it?  WIll it be one of hate and fear, or one of tolerance and compassion.  My fellow brothers and sisters of different faiths and cultures think about this day I pray that people choose to see what connects humanity together rather than what separates us.

Take this time to reflect on how we all must fit into this world.

Therefore, In my open letter to the city that calls me one of her own, don’t close your doors and your hearts.

Don't Close, 2001 New York

CLOSED, 2001 NYC
