Opinion: Remember Sept. 11 by being kind

Today is September 11. On this day, nine years ago, terrorists attacked the United States.

The attack was disgusting. Horrible. Unthinkable. Wrong.

It made us angry. It made us fight back. It made us think twice about yelling "bomb" at an airport.

It fueled religious and ethnic discrimination. It caused many to stare at someone wearing a taqiyah or hijab.

But here's the thing: Jesus loves you and me no matter how many times we've hurt Him. Nor does He think that all Adventists are the same. Can't we do the same?

So, today is September 11; today is also Sabbath. Come up with something nice to do for someone. Random acts of kindness go a long way. They are like a boomerang. Try it out and you'll see what I mean.

P.S. Burning a Quran IS NOT a random act of kindness. Don't do it.
