Like most people, I remember exactly where I was when I heard about the terrorist attacks of September 11th. I was at a BSF meeting (Bible Study Fellowship). It was near the end of our first meeting and we were gathered as a large group, waiting to hear from our speaker, who was delayed. When she finally spoke, it was with the heartbreaking news of the attacks — and her daughter was in New York, who she couldn’t reach.  We were all women from different Christian religions, but we let our differences go and we united to pray. We prayed for the victims and their families; we prayed for our President to know what to do; we prayed for all who were suffering and for all who were risking their lives to find survivors. We prayed for miracles.

I remember thinking what I still think today: how horrible and scary that this could happen in our great nation. It’s as if our “live and let live” freedoms were now naive — how could we allow this to happen? It was a HUGE wake-up call for our national security and life as we knew it changed forever.

I put together a slideshow of sorts, using a new program I just learned called — it’s like Powerpoint on steroids — to remember September 11th. At the end of the slideshow is a video, which I did not create, but is quite powerful.

Here’s the link: Remembering 9/11

God Bless America.

    I was home, pregnant with my second child, when my husband called to tell me to turn on the tv. I remember being overwhelmed, thinking what a world to bring a child into. I still cry when watch these. Thanks, Maggie.

    You’re welcome, Michelle. I can’t imagine what those poor people went through in their final minutes. It’s a tragic loss for all of us.

    The year 2001 should not be repeated
