An Appreciation of Tradition As A Spiritual Practice

Today is September 11. In the United States, we remember men and women lost due to the attack on the World Trade Center and elsewhere. We remember where we were when we heard the news. We remember our feelings of shock, despair, fear, anger, and grief. Lives have been changed forever due to these events.

It is so important that we remember the lives lost sixteen years ago and to reflect on the changes we have experienced and in our world views.

As individuals and communities we knowingly or unknowingly join in expressing our grief in a spiritual tradition as old as humankind – the tradition of those who mourn lives ended due to violence.

Today perhaps, you may wish to reach out to one another, talk about your experience and remember events and individuals. Light a candle. Take a walk. Hug your spouse. Remember.
