|From our trip to Fort McHenry in June|
I feel like, for me, anything related to September 11 will always be "too soon."
Like that 2010 film Remember Me with a surprisingly not wooden Robert Pattinson and the lovely Emilie de Ravin where (SPOILER) he dies in the attacks at the end. I was on board with the movie until that point and then I had to turn it off. "Too soon," I said.
Today my 2nd grader brought home an I SURVIVED book about the September 11th attacks. I shook my head, "Too soon."
But it's been 14 years. I guess, for some people, it's not too soon?
Anyway, as I've been reflecting today and seeing other people's thoughts on social media I've run across a few charities I wanted to highlight.
National Fallen Firefighters Foundation | A charity devoted to remembering fallen firefighters and providing resources to those they left behind.
Fisher House Foundation | Among other things, you can donate your airline miles to bring family members to the side of injured or ill service members.
Wounded Warrior Project | Helping wounded service members find education and employment, among other services.
Operation Gratitude | Today would be a great day to write a letter to a man or woman serving our country.
Various 9/11 Charities | A great list of charities doing good for or in behalf of those affected most by the attacks.
