Hello friends, like many of you I know exactly where I was on September 11th, 20 years ago today. On that morning, I was in the hall carrying some folders on my way to a meeting. Someone called out to me to come to the gym (there were televisions in the gym). We all stood and watched in horror. Most of us were unable to speak as we watched the news about commercial airliners being hijacked by al-Qaeda terrorists.
The north tower had been struck by one of the planes. A few minutes later another plane flew into the south tower of the world trade center. I began to cry. then the tower collapsed. My “temporary” superior walked into the gym and asked, “why are you all in here, and then asked me why I was crying, he said, ” did you know someone on the plane?”
I didn’t reply to his ignorance , but instead walked over to hug someone who had fallen to her knee’s. We prayed together.
Later that morning the aforementioned “temporary superior” told us all to get back to work. I asked if we could have the news station on, he replied, ” you can watch the news when you get home, everyone needs to get back to work”.
My hubby was at work too, but we were speaking on the phone. A third plane hit the Pentagon and a fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers overcame the terrorists.
On this National Day of Service and Remembrance, please join me in prayer as we all honor those who were lost, those who remain behind, and the countless heroes from that devastating day 20 years ago.
Today is also known as Patriots day.
There will be prayer vigils and services of remembrance throughout our country. All faiths join as one.
