September 11 Never Forget

On September 11, 2001, I was walking down my college walkways headed to class. At the time, I like my cd’s more than the radio and had no clue as to what had happened. I walked into one of the foyers of a building that had a few TV’s in the sitting areas. There were several students glued to the screen so I went to see what had happened. That’s when I saw the horrifying events unfold. I will never forget that day. My heart broke for the thousands who were hurting and scared. I was scared too. And praying, lots of praying as I continuously ran to God asking for help, understanding and protection.

This last year I visited the Flight 93 crash site and memorial in Pennsylvania. It was an emotional visit and one that brought back all the events and feelings from that day.

A lot of people ask questions of God when events like 9.11 happen. I know I did too. After a school shooting Relevant Magazine posted an article by Sarah Sumner called “Where Is God In Tragedy?” She says, “Even when tragedies happen, God can still be trusted. God is. And God is faithful. He has given us many gifts as we entrust ourselves to Him in our pain and in our empathy for others. Perhaps the three most visible gifts are the gift of people, the gift of joy and the gift of God Himself.” We saw many people jump into action and become heroes that day and in the weeks and months ahead. We saw the good side of our country as we banded together to help each other and fight terrorism. People who would never darken the door of a church were racing to them seeking God.

I will never forget those who suffered and are still suffering and those who sacrificed to help their fellow man. May God bless the hurting with peace and comfort and bless the heroes for their amazing efforts.

POST WHERE YOU WERE WHEN YOU FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE EVENTS OF 9.11.

Tragedy has once again struck America when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, Irma hit Florida and the wildfires spread in Washington, Oregon, Montana and California. Keep praying for those who lost their homes, jobs and family. They have a long recovery time ahead of them.
