Wish Lanterns are an ideal way to commemorate the upcoming September 11th 10 year anniversary of the falling of the twin towers. It was a heartbreaking and shocking moment for the whole world as people watched and couldn’t believe what was going on. There are various events organized throughout the US that will honor this very painful date. It is a day that the whole world united to grieve for the lives lost and for those that have suffered. It was a tremendous shock and wakeup call for the states and the war on terror began.
This year is especially special as it has been a full 10 years since this horrific event, and its time to look back on what we have achieved since then. How has the United States truly united and how regular people became heroes on that day. Gather with friends and family and write down your wishes of peace as well as wishes for the families that were torn apart. Then head outside to an open area such as a park, field, or shore and release several Wish Lanterns with these special wishes attached on them. Take a couple of minutes in silence and remember the day that changed the world and truly united the United States.
