Photographer's Note

On the eighth anniversary of the September 11th tragedy, here are my thoughts…

We might feel as though we are just one small person in this big world, unable to really make a difference, or do something big. But we can all do something IMPORTANT, something MEANINGFUL, something that might have a lasting impact on another person’s life.

Here are some things we CAN do:
-offer a smile to each person we see during our day
-listen to someone who needs to talk
-offer words of encouragement to anyone who is struggling
-let someone know that if they need a helping hand, they can count on us
-spread positivity whenever possible

You can never truly know how POWERFUL a kind word, or genuine compassion can be. We are all in this together, and if we can do nothing else, we can at least be good to one another.

With love and respect to all my fellow “world citizens”…
