Today is the day that I commit to peacefulness and kindess. In a way it's a sort of New Year's Eve for me.
It truly blows my mind (in the best possible way) that the worst of human nature brought out the best in human nature. I will always cherish the spirit in my community in the days that followed the 9/11 tragedy. We showed our true colors, were kind to each other, and offered help and support to anyone and everyone who needed it.
I will strive for that every day.
