Lest We Ever Forget - 9/11/2001

Let us never forget September 11th, 2001, and the great people who died on that day. May God Bless America and may America praise and glorify God.

Where were you on September 11, 2001?

I was at home sick that day. I woke up around 8 AM, sat on the end of my bed and turned on the television. Then I saw the Twin Towers burning on channel after channel. I ran into my famiy room and everyone else in my family was watching it on television in there already.

I went to the doctor that day and on the way I heard that the first tower fell. I remember going down the road and seeing one man place a large sign painted on wood in his yard asking for God's mercy. At the doctor's office, I clearly remember everyone huddled around the television. The nurses were watching it through the blinds of their office while talking on the phone. I was watching television when the second tower fell. I'll never forget it. I'll never forget thinking about all of those lives snuffed out. It's hard for me to think that it's already been five years. It's hard to think about that day. I remember the pain and confusion and fear the rest of the week.

I recently re-watched a documentary on that day filmed by two French brothers and narrated by Robert DeNiro. They actually have footage from inside the burning towers. The part where people actual were jumping out of the windows was the worst part.

Kyrie eleison!
