Never Forget.

This is not going to be a post about superficial things. It's not going to be me talking about my new lipgloss that is the perfect shade. It's not going to be me talking about that new purple purse that I just have to purchase. No, this is something else. It's about my love for my country. It's about my love of people. And well, it's about my love of love and happiness.

It's hard to believe that it has been so long since this day in 2001. Was it really eight years ago that I was sitting in silence with my high school class while watching the news reports? Was it really that long ago that the country swore to come together and unite as one? Some stuck to that promise and some seemed to move quickly on. Eight years? My oh my, how time quickly floats by.

While I remember those lives lost and those that dedicate their lives to helping others, I'm going to smile. I'm going to smile at the compassion of others and how when life gets tough, you can find humanity in everyone. We are all human and we all have the ability to love. So today, what will you do to spread love? Hold the door open for a stranger. Smile at that person sitting alone on the city transit. Pay for the person's movie that is in line behind you. Whatever. Just smile and be grateful. You have life. You have love. Pay it forward and smile! Love is the movement. :)

That's all. Never forget. That day. The heroes. The lives. The love. ♥
