A short letter of condolence and prayer from author, Penelope Miller.
I suppose this is not so much an article, as it is a way to express my sympathy and sadness toward the tragedy which hit our country on September 11, 2001..
I would use this area as a small arena to offer the thoughts and prayers of myself and my family to the many victims of this horrendous act against our Nation...to all those about America who have lost loved one's...to those who so selflessly continue to search for survivors...and, of course to those who may yet live and be waiting, still, for rescue.
We also offer our prayers to President Bush and all of our Nation's leaders, that God may guide them through these trying days, and all those which may lie ahead.
Let us continue to pull together. Let us fly our flags with pride...donate blood as is needed...and continue to offer financial aid and donations in any form we're able. Many of us may even know someone who has been called into action by our President; perhaps we may offer our services to their families by way of a few simple chores around their home, or merely our support that their loved one may know they are not alone as they, themselves, move forward in an effort to defend our Country. There are so very many ways in which we may reach out to those suffering the most...and when we begin to believe there is nothing left to do, pray God that we find it. There is always a way.
And please, let not a single one of us condemn another American for the tragedy which has been thrust upon us. No matter what race or religion, we are all--each one of us--a single Nation under God. We are a strong and proud Nation. Let us stand together, strong and proud...and in peace with one another. Oh, yes, we're all angry, but we are not them...we do not harm the innocent as a way to show our fear and condemnation. We're America!
If you are in search of a way to help, or are in need yourself, I have set up an area in my personal website with many links to accomplish such. You can find me at www.penelopemiller.com
God be with us...
