On 9/11 we were filled with shock and terror. I remember feeling like the day would never end and the attacks would keep on coming. But the day did end. When it did, we gathered together in our communities and held one another. We got on our knees and sought God.
Then on 9/12 we did what Americans always do. We got down to the business at hand. We came out and helped one another. People from all over the country got in their cars and trucks and headed to Ground Zero to assist in the rescue efforts and support the first responders. Regular folks brought tons of food and bottled water for the exhausted police and fire fighters. Americans all over the country donated blood and money for the victims and their families. We showed the heart of this nation and stood on the principles and values that made this the greatest country the world has ever known. On that day we swore we would never forget.
Do you ever feel as if we have forgotten? As a nation have we gone back to sleep? The weeks after 9/11 church attendance soared. Sadly, that elevated attendance would not last. The Red Cross had more blood donations than they could handle. Now we are hearing about donor shortages. While on 9/12 wonderful people drove across the country to provide meals for the heroes at Ground Zero, most food banks today are experiencing shockingly empty shelves.
The 9/12 Project was founded on these ideas. 9/12 groups all across the country strive to live out the principles and values that the Founding Fathers put forth. It’s a commitment that every American needs to make if we are to restore our nation and take it back from the brink of extinction we find ourselves nearing.
