September 11

Every year on this day we mourn the loss of lives from a most violent and vicious attack upon our country. Our hearts broke when we saw a plane had crashed into the first of the Twin Towers. Then, as we saw another plane collide with the second tower, we knew we were under attack and were stunned! Fear sets in without even knowing that the Pentagon had been attacked and another plane had been hijacked and crashed in Pennsylvania. We all gathered our children and glued ourselves to the television just waiting for what might happen next. My mother got stranded in Mississippi and had to rent a car to get home because they closed down all the airports. What kind of person would dare try to take our country down? We are the land of the free and the home of the brave! Only a sick mind and depraved soul would do such a thing. We must continue to tell the real story to our children and grandchildren from the eyes of those who lived through it before it gets sanitized by those who've forgotten. I'm not sure if our hearts have fully recovered from that horrific day. It was a great awakening for our country and many returned to God that day. What is it going to take to set us straight now? We can only hope that we are spared.

Blessed be the Lord, who daily bear us up; God is our salvation. Selah. Our God is a God of salvation, and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death. Psalms 68:19-20
