“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” Sandy Dahl, wife of flight 93 Pilot Jason Dahl.

I truly wish we were the people we were on 9/12, when we all came together as a nation, and our petty differences were so small in the face of such a disaster.  Love your neighbor, smile at strangers, be the light that this world needs right now.

Thank you all for joining me this morning.
