September 11th is a hard day for many and today marking the 10 year anniversary of the Terrorist Attack on the World Trade Centre buildings brings up a lot of emotions.
Most people you talk to will be able to tell you exactly what they were doing at the moment they found out.
I was sleeping and I got a phone call from my friend, and when I answered she said “The World is going to End”… of course I assumed she was joking and she told me to turn on the tv.
Words could never express how I felt that day. I wasn’t able to take my eyes of the TV, and I don’t think I stopped crying the entire day. I wavered back and fourth through anger, sadness, desperation, fear and just plain raw.
10 years later and those feelings are come up again. A friend posted this on facebook and I appreciated the stories and the emotions that they portrayed. Grab a tissue and watch. You can go to the website here, or watch below. (there are more videos on the website)…
And as if that wasn’t enough of a tear jerker - here is a video of the most beautiful love story (from the same website)… don’t say I didn’t warn you – it’s a serious “hand full of tissues” cry.
Some good news today – recently there was a kidnapping in British Columbia – last night the kidnapper returned the child home. He still has not been found, but what a huge blessing it is that the sweet boy was returned home.
Hug everyone you can today.
Thanks for your reflection on this day....I'm going to watch the video, but I'm gonna wait till I get some work done and time for a good cry :)ReplyDelete
I am so happy that that precious little boy was returned to his parents safe and sound. God was watching over him :-)ReplyDelete
With Baby M sleeping I'll have to come back to those videos next time, but just wanted to say that I am sooo glad that the little boy was returned. Oh what an ordeal any parent should NEVER face :(ReplyDelete
It was so neat, a friend of ours was prompted by God to pray for this little boy in the middle of that night and he prayed till 3:00 in the morning and suddenly...he had peace. He didn't know that was the exact time that that precious boy was returned!ReplyDelete
The power of prayer...so exciting!
That was the sweetest love story I've ever heard. Just goes to show you don't need a "fairytale" to have true love. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
