As part of the Projects' Gallery, I will put out articles about Holidays, Events or Awareness. I cover as many aspects as possible in my monthly blog, but sometimes I do an additional article when merited.
Ten-years ago there was an attack in the Unites States, that did not only affect Americans, but many countries whose citizens were killed or injured that day. More than ninety countries lost citizens to the attacks, as well as in subsequent years, as related illnesses took their toll.
On September 11, 2001, the attacks resulted in 2,996 deaths, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. The hijackers didn't take into consideration just whom they were killing, just that they intended to kill after being brainwashed by a very sick man. That type of hatred knows no boundaries. It staggers the imagination to think how it is possible to hate so very much.
Now it is time to concentrate on Healing and Remembrance ~ it isn't about blame but true healing. We are all citizens of the same planet. Hopefully, one day, everyone will realize that fact.
Many Thanks to Negatic for helping me to find deviantART Remembrance Deviations to feature, as well as to TimberClipse for his advice and suggestions.
