"Where Were You ?"
In the words of Alan Jackson's musical tribute to 9/11...'Where were you the day the earth stood still?' I dare say most of us have the memory of that day permanantly etched in our brains and our hearts, as it should be. Despite the rain and wind blowing here in the northeast I can still remember that beautiful crisp fall day as if it were yesterday. The beautiful sky day belied the horror that would take place that day. May we all continue to pray for the families of those lost on 9/11 and those responders who today are so ill because of the failout as they worked to rescue and recover. It hardly seems possible that it has been eight years since that fateful day, so much has changed, and in some regards so little. As a nation we need to ask God back into our lives, back into our schools and our courthouses...this country is in need of prayer now every bit as much as it was on 9/11. I am sure there are some who may take offense at my words and I'm sorry if you feel offended but I cannot and will not deny my beliefs, especially today.
