History from a southern belle.

Post 9/11

Twelve years after the horror of 9/11, we seem to be no better off as a nation. Hate is at an all-time high, especially now that hate comes in the guise of intolerance to intolerance. We bully and blaspheme those in the name of equality, we kill children in our schools and blame the weapons we hold in our hand or the harsh words said to us by someone else, we start wars based on convenient principals, and we are no closer to the dreams of Dr. King. We should look back on the day that we stood as a nation, a united nation, and came together with a common idea that neighbors helped neighbors and we all held hands, no matter the color of our skin, our sexual preference, our religion, or our political beliefs. I pray we strive to find this unity once again in our nation and as human beings in this world.
