The Spirit of September 12th

In comradeship is danger countered best. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

People will help each other because there is a sense of camaraderie that springs up, which is a survival tactic. You help them because you know you might need their help later. And that is incredibly reassuring. ~ Amanda Ripley

Having seen hate, evil, willfulness,
the worst people can be or do,
the spirit of love,
of unity, of support,
of unity gave us a time
to experience the best we could be,
a camaraderie we will remember always
as a picture of love for all,
of brotherhood,
of life as it can be lived.
