Today is the 16th anniversary of the 911 tragedies in New York City, Washington, DC, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Today, people in Texas and Florida are salvaging their lives and dealing with death and destruction after the disastrous hurricanes, Harvey and Irma. Today, people in Mexico, the Philippines, Japan, and Greece are also salvaging their lives and dealing with death and destruction after the disastrous earth quakes in their countries.
During these events, we see and read about extraordinary demonstrations of humanity. When people need to be rescued those who come to their rescue do not ask what language they speak, what their cultural background is, what religion they practice, or how much education they have acquired. The simply HELP!
Every morning, I receive an email message entitled WORD FOR THE DAY, which is sent to me from A Network for Grateful Living.
Today’s, appropriate and remindful words of grateful living were a quote from Helen Keller. “Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”
It is remarkable and encouraging to see and read how people who are suffering have the emotional and physical strength to overcome their grief. It also is admirable and inspiring to see how others make themselves available to help! Let us all remember to help those who have suffered many different types of losses and now must overcome their tragedies with human kindness from others! Not just today, but every day!
