9/11: The Day That America Stood Still
A day of tragedy and great loss; a day that will forever burn in my memory. I was up early, sitting in my living room with the television on, waiting for my family. I was watching the morning news, when suddenly the images began to appear as they were happening. Unbelievable…shocking…disturbing…surreal….
I was one of the lucky ones, I didn’t lose a friend or family member through this nightmare. in my own heart, felt the pain and loss for them and those hundreds of families that did. It was later, when they began to talk to the families that had lost loved ones that I began to realize that we should never take a single moment for granted. This is the time to appreciate the people we love and who love us, and to never let the sun set while still angry, or allow a dear one to walk out the door with bitterness and resentment.
Today is the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2011. my heart, my thoughts and prayers go out to those families that will always feel their loss. Today, I would suggest that in addition to remembering where we were, we remember where we were not and take an extra moment — after we have spent a million moments honoring those who were there — and be grateful to whatever God or forces you may believe in.
