Eleven Years

It's been eleven years since the attack on September 11th.

Like many things in life it seems both like yesterday and a very long time ago.

I am happy to see the rebuilding in New York and the movement forward in healing these great wounds. The spirit of Americans to overcome adversity is unmatched and proven time and time again. I am always optimistic that we and our children will solve the problems that come our way, making the entire world a better place.

What concerns me is the continued rise of intolerance.

Intolerance, taken to an extreme, is what caused the attacks in the first place.

Seeing intolerance rise in America, is disheartening.

America, we are a better country than this.

We all love our country, our families, and want a bright future for our children.

We are all on the same side, trying to make the most out of life and liberty with as much happiness as possible.

We are all in this great experiment together and need to start treating each other better, assuming best intentions rather than malice.
