Remember Christine Lee Hanson

When the totality of it becomes overwhelming, I make a special effort to remember just one person.

Christine Lee Hanson. She was traveling with her parents to visit Disneyland in California on United Flight 175. She was three. She was the youngest person to die on 9/11.

She should be seventeen.

Look through the stories of the murdered.  

Pick one and learn about them, their life, and what their loss means to those left behind. 

Then remember.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
--Laurence Binyon

Amen. So much this whole world lost with those souls' passing.

It is important to remember, otherwise the pool of remembrance will shrink with each friend or family member's passing until only the famous are remembered; the news announcer's wife, or Todd Beemer. Everyone murdered that day had something to contribute in life, and we will never know what that would have been thanks to the evil ones.

I remember my three friends that died in the Pentagon. But a great idea for those who didn't know anyone personally.
