Five Minute Friday: Heal

This week the topic for the Five Minute Friday link-up post is Heal. What is a link-up? Essentially a link-up is when you join other bloggers and write on a similar topic. You share your blog posts with one another and begin conversations via a host site. You can head over to Kate Motaung’s page to check out other entries from inspired bloggers. Here’s my five minutes of uninterrupted, unedited writing on this week’s topic:

Dear Healing,

Fifteen years ago you were sought after. A sudden hope after such tragic loss. So many were searching for you when the dust cleared and the buildings fell, but there were those who never found you. Families were forever changed. Our nation was governed by loss. Nothing so widespread had occurred in our life times. We watched as our feelings of security melted away with the frames of the towers. Staring and trying to answer the question, “Why?”

Many of us accepted the new reality. We found our strength and we attempted to move on. Those terrible moments were but a collection of images forever emblazoned in our minds, but their power kept us from ever being at ease.

To remember life before evil stormed in to our world and to know how those men destroyed it all it’s hard to say that we are over you, Healing. We still seek after you. Day after day we pursue you as a country.

We look to reconcile and we strive to return to a life free from fear, but we still need you everyday. You keep us from forgetting those things that perished along with so many good men and women that day. And when we wanted to collapse and give up you gave us the power to rebuild. We are a stronger people today thanks to you. We will always remember and continue to chase after you.
