The tenth anniversary of 9/11 will be marked with painful memories, and for the first time some sense of resolution with the death of Osama bin Laden. Let's challenge ourselves to further mark the anniversary with deeds.
First and foremost, we should honor the soldiers who have risked their lives for us, and September 11 is a time to go beyond thanking them for their service. Deliver a gift to them. If you can't afford to, then offer help: cook them a meal, mow their lawns, walk their dogs, babysit their children, run errands. Donate time or money to organizations helping soldiers that have returned home.
If you oppose the Ground Zero mosque, consider attending a screening of Sacrificed Survivors: The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Mega-Mosque. The Christian Action Network will be holding screenings on September 9, 10, and 13 in public parks in New York City. Over a dozen churches are showing the film this September 11.
