9/11 Thoughts

Filed under: crossdresser — Sarah Michelle @ 3:17 pm

The date is Wednesday September 7th. The year is 2011. The television is constantly reminding me that the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Centre tragedy is approaching. How does one begin to honor the memory of so many victims? My moment of silence seems so feeble in the face of so much pain still being suffered by so many people.
To some extent my feelings are tainted by survivor guilt. I worked in law enforcement for decades and I was never tested the way the NYPD, the New York Port Police and the NYFD was. Those in the service of the public that day were truly tested and set a benchmark that the rest of us can only hold in reverence. I have lived for over 5 decades and I have never been tested the way the passengers were on Flight 93. They were tested and found to be truly altruistic in the way only human beings can be. No monument or memorial will ever do justice to your actions.
All I can do is pledge to honour your memory by holding dear the freedoms you stood for and asking my God to help me defend those rights and freedoms with the same passion and fortitude.
