Still fresh in my memory, it was a Tuesday morning, the day that America changed, September 11, 2001.
While working someone said, “an airplane hit the World Trade Center”. I was confused, those buildings are super high, how can an airplane not see them? Not too long after that we hear a second airplane crashed into the 2nd tower. My heart dropped. How can this happen? There’s got to be an error. As we listened to the news, confusion raised and I had more questions than answers. Today, 16 years later, as I’m writing this, I have to stop and take a moment to breathe. When I think of this day, the day America changed, the feelings are still here just like 16 years ago.
I didn’t know any of the precious lives that were lost that day, but today I want to HONOR them and those who risked their lives to rescue others. Remembering them still hurts, but we must continue and press on and that is the reason for this post.
This year during my trip to New York City I stopped at the 9/11 memorial. It was breath-taking, that’s the only way I can describe it. Looking around and remembering the many lives lost in that place on that day. A beautiful memorial was created with the names of those who lost their lives. You can see flowers and hear the water flowing as you look around and just breathe, take in that peace yet reflex on the events of that day. God bless America.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Romans 12:15
