Quick thoughts: September 11 - A day of remembrance, mourning and service

Today is September 11. Twelve years ago, we witnessed moments that few of us will ever forget. 

Today has been called a day of remembrance, a day of mourning, and a day of service. I think that it's a great sign of American resilience that we can use one day to spur us to do all of these things. As with many of our holidays, we can do more than one thing at a time.

Using today as a "day of service" means committing to do something to help improve the lives of others. That is a very noble task, and one kind of fitting tribute to those who lost their lives on September 11th and those who sacrificed their lives in service after that day.
