A hero is a man who does what he can.
It began as any other day, a cup of coffee, a bowl of cereal, a quick look at the news and the weather, then off to get dressed. A friend called and said that a plane had flown into the World Trade Center. Hmmm, an accident I was sure, somehow a small plane had flown off course and was unable to make the turn to avoid the building. My friend called back, "Did you turn on the television? Another plane has flown into the twin tower!!" Now I knew, this was no accident. I turned on the television and saw that the pentagon was in flames. Who would be next?
As the morning continued to unfold and the towers fell, I called my husband in tears and begged him to come home. I somehow felt that as long as we were together, it would be okay. Friends called from Germany and Italy, "Are you okay?"
Thirteen years ago, the thought that someone would take a plane and turn it into a missile was unthinkable, And now today, it's difficult to believe that in our modern day people can harbor so much hatred toward another that they can find pride in brutally beheading another. Atrocities happen, they have since the beginning of time and they will until the end of time. But rather than focus on evil, I would rather focus on the goodness of man. I've shared this video before, but I think it is an excellent way to to pay tribute to this day. The focus is on the goodness of people and how they came together to help others, not on those who created the chaos.

That is the only really satisfactory way of dealing with evil, not simply binding it so that it cannot work harm, but whenever possible, overcoming it with good,
