7 Years and Counting…

Do you remember where you were when you heard the news that planes had been hi-jacked and were crashing into buildings? 

I was in Rio Rancho, NM on September 11, 2001.  I was getting ready for my day when the phone rang.  Pam, our church secretary, called to tell me to turn on the news.  I was standing in my bedroom and turned on the TV.  The first plane had hit the first tower.  While watching moments later the 2nd plane hit.

I recall hearing about another plane hitting the Pentagon… and yet another plane missing.  We all know the missing plane crashed in Pennsylvania.

It was shortly after this day American Flags started showing up everywhere!  If one didn’t have a flag on the car you looked a bit out of place.  “United We Stand” became slogan for the day and the years ahead. 

A sleeping Nation was awakened…

I pray we will not forget September 11, 2001.  I pray we will not let our guard down again. 

Today’s news seven years later leaves us with questions about North Koreaand IranRussiais in the midst of performing military exercises hosted by Venezuela.  Osama Bin Ladan is still at large.  Iraq is showing progress and more attention is being placed on AfghanistanIsrael seeks to defend her Nation in the midst of threats from Iran.

With new challenges on the horizon lets not forget September 11, 2001!

I recall listening to “All for One” by STRYPER in those days that followed 9-11-01.  If I had the gadgets and gizmo’s to make a video in memory to 9-11 – I would use this song.

All for One

By:  STRYPER, 1990.

Take a look around, won’t you tell me what you see
Is there love to be found in this world’s pain and misery?
Tell me, will it ever change?
All for one and one for all
Isn’t that the way that it should be
Will we ever change this world?
United we will stand up tall
United we will never fall
If it’s all for one and one for all
Days are going by, its up to you to make a start
Before this earth of ours turns to dust and falls apart
Right now I know we can make a change
All for one and one for all
Isn’t that the way that it should be
Will we ever save this world?
United we will stand up tall
United we will never fall
If it’s all for one and one for all

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6, The Message).
