Do You Remember 9/11?

911 prayer

I was taking a bus to work on September 11, 2001, when the bus driver informed us that a plane had hit one of the twin towers in New York City. I remember many of us on the bus were not only shocked, but we had a hard time believing that such a thing could be true.

When I reached my workplace, the phones were silent, a television program was showing what had happened, and people were just trying to cope with the news of this tragic event.

Do you remember what you were doing on September 11, 2001?

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Help us to make sense of 9/11. Where evil seeks to reside let your goodness prevail. Jesus is our Sovereign Judge and His justice will come to pass, holding those accountable for this horrific event. May you continue to speak your comfort and reassurance to every family member that has been touched by this tragedy. Amen.

    I was sitting i my office working on a furniture bid when someone mentioned what was happening. Quickly everyone’s attention was switched. It was surreal. I was usually out on the road selling. It was quite a morning.

    Thanks, David. Watching the airplanes fly into the towers over and over via replay and the resulting destruction involving thousands of lives was surreal. I remember the thought that came to me at the time was that it was a foreshadowing of the Apocalypse.
