Construction workers pulled up a spire that will take the height of One World Trade Center in New York City to 1,776 feet. Maybe this move will allow the world to find closure in the loss of the previous twin towers. We all know people or of people who will never be the same after going through that tragedy. We don’t move on, we move forward. We take what happened and learn from our mistakes in our reactions. Whenever someone loses a loved one, they tend to lose all perspective on life. Death is part of life though. Death first requires life and to give up on living for today is to sacrifice the gift of the many people who came before us all to give us the world we have now. Is it a perfect world? No. Would we want a perfect world? I doubt it.
Instead we take our collective wisdom and work to bring people together in a common effort to address the problems and bring a harmony to our interactions. No one way is right. Even lovers argue. We must not give up on the fight. Our resolve at carrying each other through the darkness is especially important when we experience loss. Nobody is strong enough to go through life alone so for the time being, let’s spend a little more time together through the thick and thin. At the end of the day, things work out to those who take care of each other. Selfishness always ends in tears. Karma is real and balance comes through constant readjustment. Let’s learn from our mistakes and move forward.
