Today is not a day that we will ever forget in our lifetime. How can we not be forever changed by witnessing those horrible events that took place on September 11, 2001. Many of us have no connection to New York or the towers and we don't know anyone that died on that dreadful day and yet, we stop, we pray, we are solemn in silence, we give thanks for those who served and serve, we beg for peace in this world. We remember and we will never forget that horrific day and the days that followed. The day that changed our countries history, the day we saw the true evil in this world, the day our freedom was threatened, the day we united, all people, all races, all ethnicities as one...one nation under God. How could we forget? September 11, 2001 is forever marked in our hearts.
Today we remember, Today we pray for peace...
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
