Ten years ago today, men who were filled with hatred attacked our nation on our own soil.
They thought that this act of violence and hatred would destroy our nation...
They were wrong.
Our nation was brought together in ways never before seen.
People reached out to each other...neighbors helping neighbors...strangers helping strangers.
Men and women alike joined the military to protect their fellow citizens.
Volunteerism swelled, as people realized they wanted to do something for others.
People reconnected with their families and friends...relationships strengthened...bonds cemented.
As I struggle sometimes to explain the events of September 11, 2001 to my kids, I always try to mention the incredible outpouring of love that resulted from that day.
Hate never wins.
Love conquers all.
