“I Miss 9/12.”

September 12, 2018

Leigh Ann Ogburn, both a former parishioner and friend in real life, found this, and I thank her for letting me share it with you —

I miss 9/12.

I would never ever want another 9/11, but I miss the America of 9/12.

Stores ran out of flags to sell because they were being flown everywhere.

People were Americans before they were upper or lower class, Jewish or Christian, Republican or Democrat.

We hugged people without caring if they ate at Chick-Fil-A or wore Nikes.

On 9/12, what mattered more was what united us, than what divided us.

She and I aren’t the only ones missing that America these days, are we?
