A Thoughtfilled Day  

Posted by Benjie

Today is another one of those days that we will always remember. Not because we want to, not because the day itself is of any significance over any other day the calendar brings, but because of the memory of the destruction of life as we know it.

I left our weekly men's prayer breakfast at First Baptist Church in Palestine, Texas, and gone to the post office. News was playing on my radio, and I had to listen closely to make sure that I understood what had just been reported.

As we remember today those who were ripped from their lives prematurely, those who are survivors to those who lost or gave their lives because of the tragedy of 9/11, and those of us who simply look for ways to continue living in the world beyond that date, let us live honorably as Americans and lovingly as believers in Jesus Christ. Today we will either remember the destruction of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center or we will be forced to do so by the media. I would like to encourage you, dear reader, to keep a prayer on your lips for the survivors and for the perpetrators of this historic event.
