We at T Ching think it is important today for all of us (around the world) to stop and take a moment to reflect on 9/11. We believe it important to remember those that were directly involved in that catastrophic event as well as the much larger significance that that event represents.

Every day we are bombarded by reminders that this world is not a safe place; that terrorism exists in many different ways. What we seldom hear about or even think about is all that exists in this world that we do have to appreciate. In light of the events of 9/11 and all the people that continue to be effected by acts of terrorism, violence, intolerance and oppression, let us stop to remind ourselves how fortunate we are and how much we do have to appreciate in our lives. Even those who’s lives were directly and permanently effected that day, can find something in their lives now to be grateful for. Let us remember that we are all of one spirit and one blood.
