I have watch this over and over and each time it gives me a since
of peace that I haven't felt since Sept. 11. I live in Kansas and
feel so far away from ground zero and at times so helpless. I am losing
my job due to the disaster in New York but when I see pictures like
yours it makes me realize that my problems are small in comparison
to what the entire nation and families of the missing and dead are
is strong and will prevail and I have never felt more proud to be
and live as a American.
was watching this I remembered an e-mail that I received from a
co-worker; if you would like you can post it.
"911" Call To God
the World Trade Centers crumbled, our lives were crumbled too, So
God, We're dialing 911 - "We need to talk to you!"
tried to see your face today, but God we could not see, The smoke
and fire engulfed us, we scream, "Who can this be?"
watching now with horror, God, as thousands lose their lives, At
the hands of cold blood killers, using planes that
fly our skies.
weeping, praying, crying God, our faith in You now wanes, Where
were you God this morning? Who piloted those planes?
know you love America, you've blessed us many ways, But God, this
scene is so surreal, the world is in a daze.
Nation's "Under God," you know, so will you please come
near, We need to feel your presence, Lord, our lives are filled
need your guidance now, Oh Lord, we simply cannot cope, This tragedy
has ripped away, our life, our love, our hope.
God, these loved ones left behind, need strength beyond compare,
Their lives are shattered, all is gone, please show them that you
put your arms around them, draw them close unto your breast, Heal
their wounds and mend their hearts, hold them high above the rest.
you summon Heavens angels, to prepare them for the day, And you
wait at Heaven's portal for our loved ones on their way,
you please be sure to tell them that their lives were not in vain,
That freedom's bells though silenced, will surely ring again.
know your heart is heavy too, as you stand at Heaven's door, And
watch these deadly scenes unfold, through hate we so deplore.
freedom's bells were silenced for a moment on this date, They will
ring out loudly once again, as love outweighs the hate.
again as the nation is brought to its knees - this time with such
force, we question whether or not we will ever be able to get up
again - as tears stream down my face, the only solace I can find
is in a pen as I ask God to give me a few words that might touch
even one person whose life has been changed forever this morning.
These words came to me as I
prayed and cried for fellow Americans I do not even know - but for
whom my heart aches today...Fran Maiers
I think alot of people probably felt the same as this person but
we will prevail. God Bless America
