September 3, 2010
It was a long day that had begun with a 5:30 AM prayer breakfast. I was at work at the church (I was music director at FUMC Killeen at the time), and Martha called to tell me that a plane had crashed into one of the towers. We began to monitor the news at the church office, and it soon became apparent that something awful was taking place. We opened the church for prayer meetings, and we were on the job until into the evening.
I can remember experiencing an oppressive sadness for all of those who lost their lives that day. Also, I recall speculating that America must have felt the same way on December 7, 1941. But upon further reflection, I realized that what the Japanese had done in 1941 was noble when compared with what had just been inflicted upon innocent civilians by a collection of savages.
Never Forget. Where were You on 9.11.2001 and what were you doing? What were you thinking? How has 9.11.2001 impacted your life?
