REMEMBERING THOSE WHO PERISHED ON NINE ELEVEN





Today is a sad day indeed, we honor those that perished.  Ma y their loved ones who remained behind find strength in this difficult time of remembrance.  I know our nation will never be the same, but we must also take heed to not let tragedy define who we have become.  We are beyond that and will continue to stand tall in the world.  With that said, I would like to encourage all not to forget the children who were born on 9/11, for they too must be taught and encouraged to move forward.  I pray for all the children born on 9/11 and that their parents will be an example to them.  I pray that their parents will not allow the tragedy of 9/11 to define who they grow up to be.

Parents, grandparents, below is two websites that have great resources on how to help children cope with tragedy.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  1. Death is sorrow, but not always an ending. It is a test of our resolve, of our strength as individuals comprising a nation, to see if we can collectively rise from the ashes an stand as we once did . . . or fall victim to everything we don't.

    May God grant us peace.

  2. A very powerful message. I wrote about 9/11 on my Blog today and shared some words of comfort for those who lost loved ones. I know what grief is as I lost my identical twin sister in 2008 but I have been keeping the faith and fighting on. Take care and my best wishes to you.

  5. May we all stop and say a prayer to accept Jesus in our hearts. I've spent much of the day in tears over the fact it may have been too late for some. The Bible says we don't know when Jesus will come. We never know the hour our life will end either.

    Hopefully one of the lessons 9/11 taught is to be ready at any moment, to love others, and to forgive quickly.
    Aday

  10. I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a wonderful comment (my saving game, I am one of the co host of the blog hop). I am trying SO hard to let go of that pain of miscarriage and honestly I don't think about it all the time, the anger started there and went on and has been living a life of it's own. I am getting the help I need and also with people like you I am getting one step closer to the peace I had with God at one time! I still love him and want to trust again (I know he is trust worthy but not trusting myself and how I THINK I am doing his will but don't seem to be). I talk to him often and I KNOW there is a reason for everything I just hope we get to see that rainbow soon! :) Thank you again!!
