On September 11, 2001, we were reminded we live among cowards

The people who call the United States of America home can be divided into many categories such as religion, wealth, education, ethnicity. Those categories can be divided into divisions like young and old, black and white, male and female, straight and gay, liberal and conservative, fat and thin. Each division can be separated into interests, experiences, cultures and personalities. We could keep going, but suffice it to say –

We are all different.

But what is it that defines us – our divisions or what we have in common?

Most families and friends bicker, but they unite when crossed.

We the people who call the United States of America home sometimes lose focus and we emphasize our differences and argue about which category is right and which division is wrong.

But cross us?

On September 11, 2001, we were reminded we live among cowards.

On 9-11 we remember while we have many differences, we are all Americans…

And what binds us is infinitely stronger than the categories and divisions that divide us.
