What were you doing 5 years ago today...I think everyone in America remembers this day 5 years ago.
To the families of 1. the rescue personnel who lost their loved ones 2. the victims on the flight 3. the victims in the towers...I'm sorry for your loss. You have been in my thoughts all day today...
As a recent college graduate at the time of the attacks on America...I was still in the naive state that nothing bad could happen to America...America was invincible...then the horror that was on every channel of TV, all Radio stations, and the talk of everyone in America...it was unreal...the uncertainty of what's next...how'd this happen...who did this...one thing was certain...we as a nation would never be the same.
That's true - we aren't the same. But are we better and stronger and more united for it...it's sad to say that no - we're more divided than ever.
The verse that was on the lips of most pastors that day, still rings true today..."If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14
