Where were you the morning of 9-11-01 when you heard of the Twin Towers and other hits from planes by terrorists? I remember it very clear. I was doing dishes when my sister called and said, "Are you listening to the radio?" Well, after a few minutes of listening and calling other family members who I know didn't listen to the radio, and running out to the barn to tell Arthur, I loaded the kids up in the van and brought them over to my parents to watch this unfold on TV. No sense in having school when you can actually watch history taking place! We never imagined how much our world was about to change. And yes, we did take time to pray for those impacted by 9-11.
Silas and Priscilla don't remember 9-11 at all. The other children I had each write a school paper on the whole event for them to keep record of. But even those that remember, don't really remember things before 9-11. As far as they know things have always been this way in our country. I guess remembering this day in history, and not remembering it like my younger children, is kinda like things that happened to the children of Israel when wandering in the wilderness. They so quickly forgot the miracles that God performed for them that changed their lives. We may forget 9-11 but I pray that we never forget what God has done for us in all the everyday miracles He performs and in the greatest thing He ever did, giving his son Jesus to die for us. We cannot forget!
So where were you when you heard about 9-11?
