A National Day of Service. Somber ceremonies of remembrance.
In the United States today many people will participate in one or both of the above. It’s been fourteen years now and memories are beginning to fade. High school students have either faint or no memories of these events beyond media replays and adult conversations.
It is a sad commentary that each generation experiences at least one large, national, moment of grief.
The World Trade Center attack
The Kennedy Assassination
Let your thoughts and actions today reflect the positive feeling of patriotism, citizenship, and unity without tragedy. Participate in a community project. Pick up litter. Smile at your neighbor.
