As we remember the terror of this horrible event in our American History, let us take heart in these words from our former President:
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me.
Thank you. Good night. And God bless America."
I know I will watch some of these shows, but I must admit, not all. It is difficult to re-live the memories of this tragic day, yet it is important for us all to remember it. I cannot imagine what those who were there on that day are going through... especially, after the earthquake on Tuesday, (August 23, 2011) which forced people to evacuate their work places after the buildings shook - reminding them eerily of 9/11 all over again.
I pray for all the families who endured loss on that day of September 11, 2001 and for those who have lost loved ones - soldiers, fighting for our freedom ever since.
God Bless America ~ Land that I love!
