hard to believe 12 years have passed...


Anastasia, I remember this day so vividly. Being a teacher, I was just beginning the day and seeing the innocent smiles of small children. My friend came to me and said, come to the Media Center. I did and what I saw broke my heart. I sobbed!!! I looked at these children who would grow up either to hate or love the world. I wondered of the impact of the World Trade towers. I thought of the firefighters and police officers who risked their lives, many of them sacrificing their lives to save others (my brother was a fire fighter). I remember calling my brother and saying I was so afraid for him. His comment to me was, "Cookie, I love what I do. I would do anything to help someone else". Today my nephew is also a fire fighter and he says the same thing. My 19 yr old nephew is an Army Infantryman. He wants to protect his country from any other terrorists who might try to attack. I pray for them (and others) all the time. I weep for children growing up in a world of so many uncertainties... and then I think, My hope is not in the world but in Jesus. I have to give my family to Jesus every day and stay in peace knowing whatever happens, HE already knows what is happening. My hope, my peace is in God.


Indeed, it's hard to believe that 12 years have passed since then. Time heals all wounds, doesn't it?


I can only imagine how terrible it was for you to hear on the news that this outrageous act of cowardice was actually happening in your own country! I believe in God and pray for peace in the world every day, especially considering what is happening in Syria - just around my part of the world.
