I remember 9/11 like it was yesterday. I was living in NJ at the time and the tragedy happened just across the bridge in NY. While I wasn't from North Jersey, the ripple effect was tremendous as the reports came in about the tragic losses of my colleagues's friends and family members. This was the worst day in our Countries History. I remember watching the second tower go down on TV as it was happening. It was like so many of the major movie hits that we all pay so much to go see, but this was real! Our lives were changed forever.
Some say we are stronger, but I don't agree. While we did pull together during the immediate crisis, which is what we Americans do during crisis, I feel that since this time there have been walls of division that are growing stronger and dividing us more and more every single day. We must stand together across the political, religious, cultural and gender divide to assure that nothing like this ever happens again if we truly believe that America is the greatest country in the world and we want to honor those that were lost. People, if we are so busy and bound up in our personal agendas they can come again like a thief in the night and rob us of the life as Americans we take for granted.
God Bless America!! May she turn her face away from the worldly ways and back to the Lord!
