Had probably the most sobering few hours of my life yesterday walking through the 9/11 museum and memorial with Nate. We couldn’t stop crying and the weight of the individual stories was so heavy. It spoke to me a lot about what people will do for what they believe, and the effect that religion, however radical or “balanced”, has on humanity. I became so angry when I saw the pictures of the hijackers, until I realized I could’ve been born with those beliefs, and in the name of being faithful and not compromising, carried out the same atrocity. This picture of where a tower full of people once stood is a reminder for me and for all of us to never just trust what you’ve been told or raised in, we have a duty to think for ourselves and question our beliefs and those who claim to know the truth. We cannot afford faith whithout reason.
