As we all know, today is 9/11.
We all remember exactly where we were on this dreadful day when so many Americans lost their lives due to this vicious attack by wicked terrorists on September 11, 2001.
Our hearts go out to and our prayers go up for those who lost loved ones on that day seven years ago. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to have to relive this each year with all the media coverage that takes place.
At the same time, we must never forget what happened on this day or those who lost their lives either.
Not long after the attack, I went to Ground Zero and walked through the charred rubble of what had once been the World Trade Center’s twin towers. The smoke was still coming from the debris, and the firefighters and emergency personnel were working tirelessly, trying to retrieve bodies.
To say it was a tragic and heartbreaking scene is an understatement. We had teams on-site to provide food and spiritual counsel to those in need during this national trauma.
We all need to thank God today that there has not been another terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. We also need to continue to pray for our courageous soldiers serving overseas, doing everything they can to stop this from happening again.
Finally, we need to pray for our President, that God would give him great wisdom in the decisions he is called upon to make each and every day.
May God continue to bless America.
