The Day We Must Remember and Never Forget
September 11, 2001. It is one of those times seared into our memories. We remember what we were doing, where we were standing when the first plane crashed into the twin towers. What were you thinking when the second plane exploded as it ripped through the second builidng? How horrified were you when the pentagon was attacked? Did the plane crashed by the passengers in that open field in Pennsylvania make you wonder at the heroism they displayed in the face of the horror they endured?
I don’t know about you but I do not think today should be a day of service. Today should be a day of rememberance. Today should be a day dedicated to remind us that we must never forget.
Service is an excellent choice for all of us. But let it begin on 9.12 - the day we came together as a nation. The day we were humbled to remember how blessed we were in spite of the horror we had faced the day before. The day that churches around the world were packed for it was the only place we knew we could turn to find comfort. A place where our hearts were anchored. Let us be those people first. For it is only on that foundation we can move forward with humility and gratitude forged into strength. But for today - let us remember.
