Today we have heavy hearts as we remember the events of 9/11. We hurt for those who lost their lives & those who lost loved ones. We mourn the nearly 3000 who died & are humbled by the bravery of the first responders. We continue to grieve in the loss of our national innocence - our false sense of constant safety. But in the midst of that we should remember the true heart of this nation's people was reveled that day in open doors, open arms and open hearts. May we never forget that on that day we did not focus on nationality, wealth, education, sex or sexuality.
We focused on need. On humanity. On love…**
