I don't know when exactly I started doing this, but I have done it for as long as I can remember. I scan through the chapters for verses that I've underlined over the years -- verses that I've found meaningful or inspiring.
I woke up this morning, thinking about September 11th, as I have on every September 11th since 2001. There is little new that can be said by me about that horrible day.
But I thumbed through the Bible on my bedside table that I got when I was confirmed in 6th Grade and I came to Romans 12:21.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.It seemed like a nice quote for a day like September 11th.
I don't share this with you to open up a discussion on politics or policies. In fact, I think we should have mandatory "no political discussions" on the anniversary of this day.
I just shared that with you because it made me think that in the face of events as devastating as what happened in 2001, that's truly the best thing anyone can do . . .
Just get up in the morning and do whatever you can to try to make the world a better place.
