Hurricanes, Fires, and Remembrance

Today’s post won’t be about writing. I want to take a second to talk about heroes and American strength and resilience.


Wildfires in the west, hurricanes and flooding in the south and east, and the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil. These situations have had me praying non-stop since they happened.

Three things strike me, though, as I ponder all this:

  1. Our country is full of heroes.
  2. Americans are resilient. We have, and will continue to, bounce back after adversity.
  3. No matter our race, religion, or political affiliation, we will bond together and stand as one.

Today is a somber day. We have too much loss to ignore. But through our remembrance of 9/11 and our efforts to combat these natural disasters, one thing is certain—we will stand together and we will come back better than ever.



My thoughts and prayers go out to all impacted by these events.

  1. I’ll never forget that day – it will always be etched in my mind. And you’re right, America always seems to come together, in spite of our differences. The stories I’ve heard from the recent hurricane on the Texas coast have been heartwarming. Our country has its problems, but I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
