If We Want to Remember 9/11

The best tribute we can give to the victims of 9/11 is to remember sufferers of injustice everywhere; to be aware of terror in the world at this very moment and to vow not to contribute to the crazy.

You and I contribute to the crazy more than we realize. We might not be dropping bombs or flying into buildings, but we are adding to the violence in the world by allowing ourselves to become bitter, by refusing to forgive, by holding grudges, and by justifying many varieties of aggressive and passive-aggressive ego-protecting behavior.

It’s easy to wag our fingers and shake our heads at people, but real world change happens right here under our own skin.
