Remembering 9/11

Today I wrote this post in the I Run 4 group on Facebook.  For more information about this fabulous and inspirational group and idea, see my post here:  https://talesofstinkymom.wordpress.com/2013/07/11/running-with-purpose/
“While today is a hard day in the nation, 12 years ago I was teaching special education preschool in a public school in Virginia about 40 minutes from DC. My favorite memory of today was that as we were walking to the cafeteria for lunch, amongst the drama, hundreds of parents came to pick up their children. One of my little girls with Downs’ Syndrome looked at the worried parents and waved and smiled, not knowing their worries. That smile lifted so many hearts and gave those parents a few seconds of relief and hope for the future.

I know sometimes people look at you and don’t get it, but what you have in your heart lends a light to others during sorrowful times. Always be you and be proud of who you are and let your light and love shine.”

I wanted to share this because so many people with (dis)abilities get picked on, bullied, and hurt, and sometimes these very same people can be who “we” need in our lives.  Today, please remember those who lost their lives, helped others pick up the pieces, or just gave the nation faith, hope, and a future.
