Eleven Years

The funny thing is, this weekend I watched a movie "about" 9-11:  "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close."  Even after eleven years, seeing those images still makes me ache.  Even though I lost no one, it was close - my sister was on a plane traveling that morning.  Even after eleven years, lives are still shattered.  Even after eleven years, we haven't forgotten.  We will NEVER forget!

"Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a Power greater than any of us, spoken through the ages in Psalm 23:

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me.

This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.

Thank you. Good night. And God bless America."  George W. Bush 9-11-01
