Honoring Their Memory on 9/11

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

  1. Yes, this was so poignant–the quote and the memorial. How we wish it hadn’t happened in our time. But since it did, we can decide how we respond. (And in a world such as ours, my prayer is that we can meet hatred with love and see who is the stronger.)
