With All My Love, Remembering Sept 11, 2001


Recommended Posts

Greetings to my beloved family and friends~~

In Memory of September 11, 2001

On this day, when so many lost so much, I remember...

I remember the beautiful souls

who sing an angel-song

into my heart

and who remind me never to forget them...

and who beseech me

to *always*

fill my soul to overflowing

with gratitude....

and as I pour my deepest thanksgiving

into the River of Life...

I can see it sparkle and shine

and it reminds me

of how very good it is

to Live...

without fear,

without malice

and with a Hope that never fails.

May all those who seek

to steal our joy

never, ever win.

On this day,

when so much sorrow

cast the darkest shadow

upon our world....

may the Light

of our deepest Love

shine ever brighter,

each and every moment...

as we live our lives

in tribute...

to the healing miracle

of all that connects usto one another.

May we hold tightly to that Truth

and never let it be erased from our hearts.

On this day,

I remember,

all that was lost...

and how it taught me

to celebrate all that I have found...

with a fierce and blazing passion

to drink in every drop of Joy

in every remaining day of my life.

I promised...

on that day,

to try with all my might

to live a fearless life...

in spite of the rocks and ruts

and detours along the path of Life.

I promised,

that I would remember

the lives of the lost...

and all who struggle on...

speaking prayers

for all that they gave

and for who they loved

and for how they lived....

and that I would try

to set aside this day

as a gift to them...

and as a reminder to me...

of this precious gift of Life

that we all share.

May we remember,


the Blessing that

We are *all* Connected...

and may we pray....

in whatever way

our spirits may speak...

for the miracle

of this Great and Enduring Love

to encourage us,

strengthen us

and comfort us in our grief.

May we find our way

to Peace in this life,

come what may.

With all of the love in my heart~~

No man is an island,

Entire of itself.

Each is a piece of the continent,

A part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,

Europe is the less.

As well as if a promontory were.

As well as if a manor of thine own

Or of thine friend's were.

Each man's death diminishes me,

For I am involved in mankind.

Therefore, send not to know

For whom the bell tolls,

It tolls for thee.

John Donne
