Never Forget

In light of September 11th, let's take a moment and remember our fellow Americans who lost their lives on the day the terrorists attacked our great country.

Let's think about the little girls and boys who no longer have a mother or father because of what happened. When we think about these things, let's pray for them to have strength to continue carrying on and a great memory so that they can still hold their loved ones close.

Let's remember those who lost a spouse or significant other four years ago today. Let's pray that God comforts and continues to heal their broken heart.

Remember all of the brave heroes who stepped up to help dig people out of the rubbish, who donated blood, who steered the plane away to prevent one more disaster, who cared for those who were mourning, who risked their lives to save others.

Today, let's take a moment and remember what happened to our country and how we need to continue to prevent that from ever happening again, in our country or anywhere else.

Look to the ones you love and be grateful that we have been blessed with yet another day of life, another day of love, another day of grace.

I remember thinking, as we were being counseled in school how to discuss the subject with out younger students...those poor teachers and School principals in New York City who had to "minister" to children's whose mommies and daddies weren't going to come home from work that day. And on my wall I have a picture from a Time Magizine that showed a whole flock of little babies whose daddy's had been killed in the attack or rescue attemps and who had been born after the tragidy...a blessing of hope - live goes on.
