I’ve heard many comparisons of the impact of 9/11 on my generation to the tragedy of Pearl Harbor on the WW2 generation. Mom couldn’t talk about the latter without crying and I experience the same emotion when I remember 9/11.
Both were attacks seemingly out of nowhere that caused a stunning pain. The common denominator in both situations was the flooding of houses of worship. I remember the overwhelming need for God that followed those horrible days.
There’s a sadness in my heart that people turned away from Him as we began to develop a human understanding and response. My own church emptied as quickly as it filled. Whatever people hungered for in those days, they chose to find it in themselves instead of in the only true solution.
Very well expressed, Sherry. It is only when people are truly desperate and at a loss that God comes to their minds, and then almost as quickly He is forgotten as their source of comfort, strength and REMEMBRANCE. As history repeats itself, sadly, society continues to drift further from the God of our eternal Salvation. Christ followers can and must continue to offer hope, however fruitless it seems, to a lost and broken world. Thank you for sharing your poignant thoughts. Peace be with you as we remember.
Beautifully said Sherry. We just have to keep trying to bring them closer to the Creator. …By our actions and our prayers, and they will know we are Christians by our love.
O , we should not forget that JESUS is Thee Messiah
O , we should not forget that JESUS died for our sins
O , we should not forget that JESUS blood saves
And the folk of the world absolutely need those holy truths
We will never forget! God bless you.
I’ve been watching recaps every year, but this year, all the emotions of the day came back to me and I wept like I did when it happened.
Jesus, help us.
