On this very day 12 years ago, a single event shook the world. A lot can be said, has been said & will continue to be said I’m sure as the pages of history continue to be written. Our hearts and prayers will always be broken with the memory of those who lost their lives and those who were separated from their loved ones.
And yet even in great loss, came great resolve from the heroes and heroines who gave their all to help on that tragic day. As we take a moment to remember, there is much to be learned from that day….
One thing is, unfortunately, we don’t and never will be able to predict the future. None of us know what will happen next in our lives & in the lives of others. Rather than worrying about things we don’t know or that are yet to happen, we can trust in the One who knows the end from the beginning.
Many times, we don’t know what we’ve got until it’s gone. We wait for those moments to cherish what we once had. So as we think about that day, let us cherish the loved ones we still have in our lives & remember that justice, mercy, hope and love still resides.
Love this quote from 1 of the firemen! It is these everyday unsung heroes who constantly put their lives on the line for people they don’t know who should be getting the accolades. We salute you! And we thank you 🙂 not only for your bravery shown on 9/11, but on every other day you decide to put on your fire pants 1 leg at a time!
Though things may fall down around us, physically, emotionally, relationally, financially ….. though we may fall, we can get up! And that’s what can be said for the amazing character and spirit shown so brightly on that tragic day.
As we remember……We have a hope… We have a future….
