We hear that 9/11 changed everything. And we know that’s not the whole truth. 9/11 changed people through their emotional response, and the opportunistic pounced on the opportunity to change the rest of the ‘everything’.
9/11/01 changed how we feel about our world, yet I feel more fear and less hope today than i did then. 9/11/01 was merely the catalyst.
I’m not a poet, a preacher, a politician, or a philosopher. I have no wise words, on this anniversary, no perspective to offer. Only quotes about change.
Anniversaries are days we tend to look back. But today, while I reflect, I am also committing to looking forward. To change. 9/11/07 could change ‘everything’, too. All it wants is a catalyst.
Nothing endures but change.~Heraclitus
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
~Norman Vincent Peale
Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast.
Our government rests in public opinion. Whoever can change public opinion, can change the government, practically just so much.~Abraham Lincoln
It is great
To do that thing that ends all other deeds,
Which shackles accidents and bolts up change.
