Remembering 9/11

“The reality is that you will grieve forever.
You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one;
you will learn to live with it.
You will heal and you will rebuild yourself
around the loss you have suffered.
You will be whole again but you will never be the same.
Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.”

― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross



“There is a saying in Tibetan,
‘Tragedy should be utilized as
a source of strength.’
No matter what sort of difficulties,
how painful experience is,
if we lose our hope,
that’s our real disaster.”

― Dalai Lama
