Just this: tears, hugs, love, and compassion toward those who still hurt, who still grieve over the loss of loved ones.
Our job with The Only Love Project is to ask, “How may I help you?”
Love is NOW — present tense, and active. Therefore, seeking enemies, punishment for past wrongs, harboring anger or hatred, or wishing things had been different does not help anyone. But a helping hand, a kind word, a listening ear, a hug, or empathetic tears does.
Granted, such bring no-one back, cannot erase the horror of watching the Twin Towers collapse, stop the planes from crashing…or remove the hatred in the hearts of those who spent years orchestrating it all.
Yet, the power of the words “I love you and I am with you” cannot be overstated. The darkest of days, the saddest of hearts, can be transformed by the light of those eight words.
So, to those whose hearts still ache, whose tears still flow, who still long to see those who died that day…please know that we cry with you.
