This coming Sunday is September 11th, which in the United States is the 15th anniversary of 9/11.  It is very difficult, if not impossible, to concisely summarize the personal, national, and global effects of that morning.  Suffice to say that many around the world continue to deal with its aftermath.

In 2009,  Congress enacted legislation proclaiming 9/11 as a “National Day of Service and Remembrance” as a means of acknowledging the events of that day and of finding a way to move forward.  Please use this link for more information about the history of this act and, if so inclined, to find community projects in which to participate.

Take care.
