…if we cannot go forward and act with love.
Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love still stands when all else has fallen.
There are many things that I could say in memory of 9/11…but I am pretty sure that most of them have been said already, or will be said again. We will all be inundated with stories and images of tragedy and grace…thousands of stories, and while each and every one of them are a vital testimony to a pivotal moment in the history and psyche of out nation, but in the greater scheme of things, my individual story of that day is rather insignificant. Instead, I am going to share a song from the memorial service at the UUF that our family attends. The song, Let us Rise in Love, was originally performed by Sweet Honey in the Rock (I wholly recommend listening to their other songs, they are a phenomenal group of singers) and was written as a response to the events of ten years ago (though the video below is from another UU congregation).
