The dichotomy is odd, really. While our nation and the world mourn the senseless loss of so many innocent lives on this fateful day 10 years ago, I will be at work today being one of the first people the newest babies in our nation and world get to meet. They lay there, totally innocent and requiring our help in every way. They are the hope that anything is possible. They have not yet been tainted or ingrained with such deep hatred that our world can foster in some.
My prayers today are of course with all the families who were affected, but also, with these newest little ones. My hope is that each of them will be responsible for achieving something amazing and wonderful for our world and improve it in awesome ways.
