Carry On - September 11, 2011

This morning's lead editorial in my local newspaper, The Augusta Chronicle, is entitled "Keep Calm and Carry On". It references the poster printed in Britain during World War II aimed at boosting the morale and steeling the resolve of the British people in the face of the possibility of invasion by the Germans.   It is a fitting saying for many events in life. None more so than the events of this day ten years ago. But, as the editorialist went on to say, keeping calm doesn't mean doing nothing. It doesn't mean forgetting what happened on that beautiful September morning in 2001. It means moving forward and carrying on with building a United States that would make those who died that day proud of the country for which they gave their lives.


  1. Well said, Melinda. "Keep Calm and Carry On" says it all.
