It’s been said that the September 11th Tragedy is my generation’s Kennedy/King/Kennedy Assassinations. Every one can remember what they were doing and where they were when those images came across the screens.
I was a Junior at Wisconsin, heading out the door for my Agriculture Economics Class and I remember thinking, “Should I skip class and stay here?” But the student in me won out and I tore myself away from the TV and headed to class. When I got there, there was a note pinned to the door that classes were cancelled for the day. (It turns out that my professor had a house fire the night before.) Strange how things happen.
So, where were you on that day?
I hope you can take a few moments today to think about/ pray for those involved in the tragedy. To thank a firefighter or police officer or soldier other public worker for her or his duty. To spend a little time with your family. To be a little happier or spread some random acts of kindness… hey, there may be a blog project in there!
And if you have the chance, I have two special intentions that I’d love for you to keep in your prayers… one for each of two women who have been there for me through thick and thin.
