13 years to mourn
Yet the grief is still as real
13 years to heal
Yet the wounds remain fresh
13 years to feel
Yet we see compassion turn to contempt
They say Never Forget
Tell me? How could We?
Yet some memories continue to fail
Take a step back today
Pause from your agenda
Remember what is truly important
Not politics or bickering
Certainly not hate
13 years to the day
Allow yourself to feel
13 years to the day, remember to pray for those irreparably broken

I wrote a post on it last year:
