Nothing is more impressive than a woman who is secure in the unique way God made her.- Unknown
Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do. – Pope John XXIII
“May the lives remembered, the deeds recognized, and the spirit reawakened be eternal beacons, which reaffirm respect for life, strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom, and inspire an end to hatred, ignorance, and intolerance.”
After visiting the 9/11 memorial site last year, I felt compelled to launch my blog on 9/11 as a tribute to the innocent lives that were lost. Rebuilding Love, Hope and Faith was my first blog post and it was an encouraging piece on getting through the most difficult times and finding the strength and courage to rebuild love, hope and faith in our lives.
A year later, I can honestly say that the world has not gotten better but I’m not about to get into the further depressing details about how it is getting worse –that’s what the media is for. I have asked myself the following questions: how does one maintain his/her sanity and still see the good in the world despite being constantly bombarded with negativity? How does one continue to show love and kindness to people that do not deserve it? How does one continue to hope for the best when life keeps knocking them down?
