Editor’s Note: This article was written on September 11, 2011 but its message continues to be relevant today…..

Today is the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Today my heart and prayers are with those who lost friends and family members on that tragic day.

Much has changed in our world since that day….there are aspects of life where humanity has come together in its love and concern for one another……and, there are many things that we may not have chosen to experience as a part of modern 21st century life ….but even in those experiences we can affirm
that there is growth and learning for humanity–moving us to higher and higher turns in our evolutionary spiral to a world that works for everyone.

Last year in the midst of the “Ground Zero Mosque controversy”, I wrote a 2 part series on “Where Were You on 9/11?”  As everyday I am blessed with more readers of Conscious Bridge, I thought I might link back to my 2010 articles for those who may have missed them:

Part One

Part Two

It seems as if we have made great strides in the past year in moving beyond that so-called “controversy” as well as in coming together on the progress of the memorial that will commemorate the loss of life 10 years ago.  Maybe that is just me….choosing to see good and more good whenever I can.

But today–won’t you join me?  Please take a moment and feel deeply into your heart and sense your love and connectedness to those who lost their lives on 9/11 as well as to those individuals who were left to deal with the loss of their friends and family.  And though we are all saddened by those events of 10 years ago, may we also see the good that is coming forth on the planet….and may we affirm our continued positive evolution for all people so that we shall all know that those who lost their lives did not die in vain.

Love to all.
