Healing on the 10th anniversary of 9/11/2001

Ten years since September 11th this Sunday, and still we need healing.

Our world needs healing, our country needs healing, our communities need healing, and we need it too.

Helping others with illnesses and tragedies, facing them ourselves, we know that a decade passed may still leave us needing each other.

Trauma in many cases never diminishes, the terrible tragedies of 9/11 perhaps particularly.  Let us reach out to those who may still suffer from it quietly, feeling that their time for attention has passed as well.

Our world still needs healing from the waves of damage created in response to our tragedies as well.

As we join together in acknowledging those in our midst in need of healing, let us not forget our bigger contexts that require attention as well.
