A day never to be forgotten

September 11, 2001 is an indelible day that no one will ever forget. It was the most devastating experience not only for America, but the world over. Whether we have immediate family or not residing in America, we are all affected, as we are one big family. Terrorist attack on America has had a global effect in all ways possible, almost totally negative.

But, as we continuously hear, behind every dark cloud is a silver lining. Now, what could be a silver lining to this tragedy?
The peoples of the world are bonding together as we all feel the pain with our brother. It's a closeness that we have never witnessed before and it reminds us clearly that in situations like these, the human spirit is strong and loving and will work together to deal with the unexpected.

People are now recognizing the value of life and are no longer taking it for granted. Can you imagine losing your life in a split second in the most senseless way? Sometimes it takes dreadful events like these for us to appreciate this gift of life. I am sure most of us are thinking twice before falling prey to the minor daily miseries in life.
Security measures: We learn mainly from our shortcomings and I am certain that governments the world over are appraising their security measures and improving where necessary as a result of this mishap. Who knows, this tragedy may be a learning lesson that will prepare us for even worse attacks on our freedom to live. Our spirituality and faith have been forcefully reawakened.

We will find it difficult to make see a good out of this tragedy. Yet, we must make efforts to see the positive, whatever little, and move on. I pray that the people of America will be specially blessed and strengthened to cope with this misfortune as we come together to purge the world of negativity.
