Today is the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
Being a New Yorker it is very easy to go back to that day.
It's very easy to feel the same churning in our stomach and the deep deep despair that come along with remembering that day.
I was working in a school. almost everyone knew of a family member or friend that worked either in the towers or as a fire fighter. I remember thinking...the kids have a few more hours to be innocent of all this ...just a few hours until they find out what hate and evil can do. Some had just a few hours before they found out that their parent was killed.
I ached for all those that would never go home again.
In the time that seem to blur from hours to infinite days and weeks I was tormented by the images and I wondered about last phone calls, last thoughts, last prayers.
So today we remember and shed tears for those who were the victims of hatred.
I will pray for Wives left alone to raise children without a Dad.
I will pray for Husbands who were left alone to raise children without a Mom
I will pray for parents who lost their children
I will pray for Children who lost a parent
I will pray that this never ever happens again
I will pray for our world
Please God help us all to see your light.
