Let Us Never Forget.....

On the eve of 9/11, I'm sure many of us are thinking back to where we were... what we were doing.... when we first heard or saw this horrible tragedy on American soil take place.  I happened to be home, sipping coffee and watching Good Morning America. They broke in with the 1st plane after it hit, and as the cameras were on the Twin Towers... here came the 2nd. There was a brief moment when I thought... why are they replaying this... never thinking there could be 2.... and then there were more.

My youngest was just 10 and so... he doesn't remember anything of a pre-war world or hearing of the World Trade Center... and of the nearly 3000 people that lost their lives.

It always amazes me how people will flock to church's and "religion" when something like this happens.... and 10 years later... how many have kept that faith they professed so loudly in times of trouble? God is there for you in the midst of your sorrow and joy, every minute of every day!

And as hard as it is to remember a time like this... we must never forget. History teaches us the future... are we listening?

Okay, hopping off my soap box now - -
- No matter where we were,  our whole country was affected by this -- prayers to our country -

Hope that many others read and reflect on the good thoughts and faith you shared.

God Bless the USA, and especially those who may be in danger from an attack. Trip up any conspiracy and strength our country's spirit again.
