Today is the twelfth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. It is tough to believe it has been that long.

I think it is important that we remember and honor those lost on that day in New York, Washington, and Shanksville. We also should remember the heroism of those who risked and in many cases lost their lives putting themselves in harm's way to help others along with the heroes of United Flight 93 who saved an unknown number by preventing their flight from reaching its intended target.  We saw the best in humanity and the fundamental good in human nature by those who were willing to help. May the loved ones of those we lost find peace.

I encourage you to not get stuck saying, "Never Forget," once a year and think that is enough to remember and honor this day. Don't say things. Do things. Find some way you can make this world a better place, even if it is a small way.

God bless.
