How to remember 9/11 without burning books

In the afternoon of 11th September 2001, I came home from town, I put my shopping down, turned on the TV and watched one of the worlds most shocking events in recent times unfold in front of my eyes. You can argue its possibly changed world events more then any other event of the last decade, as its lead to wars, new levels of racism, and conspiracy theories engulfing both the American and English governments.

The members of the terrorist groups responsible happened to believe in Islam

Fast forward to 11th September 2010…

Terry Jones of The Dove World Outreach CenterI’ll be blunt. My plans for that day involve the website for Broadclyst Community Church, and going out for Dinner. I’m probably not going to do anything to remember the terrible events that happened in 2001.

On Saturday a group of people in America are going to burn the Koran, insulting and hurting a large proportion of the planet.

If you want to do something to remember the events of 9/11, here are a few ideas:

  1. Thank God for the life you have.
  2. Be thankful for the emergency services.
  3. On that note – donate to COPS.
  4. If you Love someone, tell them you love them before you go to work.
  5. Live the day like its your last.

Whatever you do. Don’t burn someones Holy Book.
