That was a horrific day, wasn't it? I think all of us where affected in some way. I remember, I woke up early got a cup of coffee and turned the tv on. The first tower had been hit and while I was watching the second one was hit. O had the sound down on the tv and I thought it was a fire, nothing entered my mind about terrorism. Then when I seen the plane hit the second one, I freaked,turned up the sound. Called my husband who was in LA and begged him to come home. Do you remember where you were when you first heard of the attacks?
Because we truely do remember this day, 5 yrs ago, in some way, we remember. Whether we were personally affected or not, we still remember and I think that is important.
Deb~I heard of it when I got to work. Everyone was talking about it as they heard it on their car radios. (I hadn't had mine on). I didn't think it was so bad, until I sat at my desk and want to Yahoo, it was on the front page. We didn't work much that day. We were too in shock.
GOD BLESS AMERICA is right, Majorlover!!! Say it loud....Say it PROUD!!!
Meet me in the Stairwell You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news, September 11, 2001. Neither will I.
I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say "Good-Bye". I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK... I am ready to go".
I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized that he wasn't coming home that night.
I was in the stairwell on the 23rd floor when a women cried out to me for help. "I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!" I said. "Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now."
I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.
I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there. Comforting and assuring them that their Faith has saved them. I was in Texas, Kansas, Mississippi, London, Quebec, Seattle.
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me? I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though they did NOT all know Me. Some met me for the first time on the 100th floor. Some sought me out in their last breath. Some couldn't hear me calling to them through the smoke and flames. "Come to Me... This way.... Take my hand."
Some chose, for the final time, to ignore me. But I WAS THERE. Most of you were not in the TOWERS that day. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me? Would you have heard My call to follow me? September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well.
Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready to go". I will be in the stairwell of your final moments. Meet me there. Meet me in the Stairwell
