Where were you when the world stopped turning 11 years ago?
Today marks the 11th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and the crash of Flight 93, all part of a terrorist attack on the United States and on the hope of freedom for mankind. In many ways Americans (and the world) have moved on, but there is no escaping that we Americans will never be quite the same. As with the attack on Pearl Harbor, our love affair with the dream, the hope, of a world that can live in peace and love, was shocked into the reality that evil continues to prowl in our world.
On this day, let us remember the fallen and injured and their families in our prayers, and let us ever remain resolute in our willingness to defend the principles upon which our nation was founded: a commitment to protecting God given and honored aspirations for human kind that we will guarantee for all "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
May the peace of God which passes all human understanding reach each of us this day, and evermore.
In His Service <><
