How has your life changed personally because of this event? Are you closer to your family? Are you closer to God? Do you feel that we, as a country, have lost some of the good that came out of this awful tragedy? I do. I think that we have become more hardened towards righteuousness. We have become more worldly and less inclined to rely on Heavenly Father. I don't believe these changes are for the better. In so many ways, I wish we could go back to the innocence of how life was before 9/11, but I know we can't. In more ways, I wish we could go back to the raw, real emotions of the few short months and years just after the attacks. We were kinder to our neighbors, less judgmental of each other, and more loving to our families and friends.
We can't change what happened that day. But we must remember what we learned from it, discard the bad and keep the good. Unfortunately, I think we are losing some of the good.
