Thoughts and Reflections

Remembering 9-11

Remembering 9-11 – where were you on that Tuesday morning 9 years ago?

What are your thoughts about 9-11 today?  Is it still etched in your memory?

Did you know anyone who lost their life on that day?

I was pastoring at Mt. Zion and remember the horror of the day as it unfolded for sure.  We had people working in the Pentagon and I remember hearing from some of them and heading out to be with their families.  I remember going to the area High School and being with the son of a friend of mine who was in the Pentagon.

Worship that following Sunday was packed as people sought some answers – and came to pray for our nation.  I hope folks will not forget and will be there tomorrow to prayer again!

Where were you and what were you doing?  Share what you can.  At times it helps to remember and to share.  It might even help others deal with their pain to hear how others are dealing with theirs!

Always remember and keep the families who were impacted and our nation – which will never be the same – in your prayers.  And remember that freedom is not free and there are people in the world who hate America because of our freedom – and they will do anything to disrupt that freedom.  Haters in the world do not understand freedom!

We will have a moment of silent prayer tomorrow in worship.

  1. It still seems so close and so important, 10 years later.
