Peace be with you all! Let's observe a moment of silence, in observance and remembrance of the tragic 9/11/01...
To all victims of the historic 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States of America, eleven years ago today, may they all rest in peace. "Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine before them." Amen.
And to all the families they left behind who suffered a terrible loss, and void in their lives, may they find comfort and strength and Love as they remember and honor today the unexpected and sudden departure and passage of their beloved loved ones.
To the rest of us around the world witnessed and learned of the attacks that has changed the course and direction of, and our views about our lives here on Earth, and the ways we interact with one another, may we all realize that Love prevails amidst all the turmoils and turbulence, and all the wars we wage in our wonderful world we live in.
May we continue to pursue and preserve peace while seeking justice and fighting against all the evils of the world. May we continue to maintain peace and order in our respective community and society as we cherish and enjoy our valued freedom and liberty to live a decent, yet productive, life with one another.
May we continue to seek solidarity and unity with all nations.
May we continue to foster friendships and brotherhood among our brothers and sisters around the globe, irrespective of their creed, culture, customs and traditions.
And may we continue to solve our problems (personal, local, national, international) with cooperation, collaboration, and coordination.
May our loving God bless us all! And may our gracious God bless the United States of America!-chris a. quilpa, 11September2012
