Tisha B'Av & Mourning

When I was much younger I thought that there should be some sort of meaning or message from the Three Weeks, the Nine Days, and Tisha B'Av.  That we should leave this period with a mission, whether that mission be to do teshuva, avoid sinas chinan, don't speak Lashon Harah, or emphasize Jewish unity. 
Lately, I've decided that mourning is sufficient.  If one can reach a point where one is genuinely mourning the death and destruction of Jews & Jewish communities  and the connection to Hashem (as Tisha B'Av is our official Day of Mourning) then that is enough.
