Connecting the Dots in an Unconnected World

September 11 - Eight Years Later

Today, we stop to remember the horrific terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. What are your memories of that day?

Unbelief - it was surreal to view planes flying into the side of the twin towers, then to hear news reports of a plane that went down in rural Pennsylvania and yet another plane flown into the Pentagon. For the first time America was attacked upon her own continental soil.

Horror - watching the towers beginning to crumble and realizing that people were trapped inside was horrific. The death toll was two thousand nine hundred and ninety-three.

Pride - many brave fire fighters and police officers risked and or gave their lives that day in order to protect or save people they did not know. Courageous men sacrificed themselves on the flight that went down in Pennsylvania. In the midst of disaster true American Heroism ruled the day.

Recognition - there are people in the world that will die to attempt to destroy us. We can no longer behave as if we are exempt from terror attack. We were plunged into a war unlike any war we have ever known. A war that continues and more than likely shall continue into our foreseeable future. We ignore this reality to our own peril. There is evil in the world.

Resolve - this is a war we did not choose, however, it is a war we must fight and win. Yes, the price is high (it can get no higher than the life of even one American). Freedom is not free. It must be reclaimed by every generation that would enjoy its blessings.

Take time today to remember that day. Pray for God to bless our soldiers that still fight for our freedom. Our life as a nation and individual people will never be the same because of those events.

Attempting to connect the dots…
