The Babies of 9-11 Photo - 10 Years Later - Photo Credit: ABC News
The 10th anniversary of the horror that is 9-11 was hard. But what made me move from the sadness of the day and look at waking up tomorrow with a smile and hope, was a show on the babies born after their fathers were killed on 9-11. If these adorable 10-year olds, can share their stories with such passion and caring for others, then there is hope for the world.
I wanted to reach through the TV screen and hug them all. But the one that really touched me was this little fellow:
Robert Atwood’s father, Gerard Atwood, was a firefighter. He said his dad’s look was imprinted on his mind. “It’s him. He has his hat on. Ladder 21. It’s all his gear. When I’m trying to go to sleep, I look at the picture and then I look in the mirror. It looks kind of like me and he, it’s looking in the eyes,” Robert Atwood said. “For Career Day [at school,] I dressed up with all his gear and my teacher wouldn’t let anybody touch it ’cause it was too valuable.”
I embedded the video below – take a look and see if you agree that it’s inspiring.
|HOPE the light that shines in the blackness
||Hope never abandons you; you abandon it.
||Every day may not be good….but there’s something good in every day.
|Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end
|| Where hope grows, miracles blossom. – Elna Rae
|| ”When the world says, ‘Give up,’ Hope whispers, ‘Try it one more time.’” – Author Unknown
|Have hope, be strong, laugh loud, live & play hard in the moment, smile often, dream big, and be happy.
||peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
||HOPE IS THE THING WITH FEATHER THAT PERCHES IN THE SOUL AND SINGS THE TUNE WITHOUT THE WORLDS AND NEVER STOPS AT ALL.
| Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible
||NEVER, LOSE, HOPE
I’m wishing everyone who was touched by 9-11 peace and hope.
