Spencer W. Kimball said the important word in the English language is the verb remember.
On today’s sixth anniversary of the tragic events of 9-11-01, take a moment to remember the lives that were lost; lives of the innocent victims and of the heroic rescue workers.
The twentieth century was one of the bloodiest and war-filled in human history, and the twenty-first century is, so far, looking like a continuation of it. Let’s remember what the real war is about: ideology. There are people in the world who hate others for no other reason than the color of their skin or the brand of their religion. This is inexcusable for the level of ‘civilization’ and sophistication we claim to have established in this modern era.
Let’s recommit ourselves to fighting the ideology of hatred and repression that led to the tragic events of that day, and honor the memory of the lives that have been lost in this epic struggle.
May we never forget.

I’m with you. Sept. 11 has been on my mind the past few days. It is crazy to think back on that day and still remember the shock and being unable to fully grasp what had happened. It is unfortunate that this is one of those events that we will remember where we were and what we were doing when people ask.
I totally missed it, you know. I was in Brazil working my guts out. When we went to dinner at a member’s home, they said, “did you hear whats been going on in your land?” Then they turned on the TV and showed us. It was nuts! Looked like something from a movie. I didn’t believe it at first (you can’t believe anything you see on Brazilian tv)
