~ From Tricycle Magazine: Along with the great sadness of 9/11 came a feeling of powerlessness. But as Thanissaro Bhikkhu wrote in our 2001 special section, “September 11: Practice and Perspectives”:
✨"We may be powerless to change the past, but we do have the power to shape the present and the future by what we do, moment by moment, right now.✨
By maintaining equanimity as well as extending compassion to others, we both honor the lives of those who died that day—and in the many violent acts since—and pave the way for a safer, saner world."
❤️🕊And President Obama said, "Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11."❤️🕊
