September 11th, 2001

I’ll never forget the day. Who could? The events of September 11th 2001 drove home to me a few points:

(1) We live in an unstable and dangerous world. Some people in it are bent on destruction.

(2) I’ve taken safety and relative security for granted. Life can end for me or you at any time.

(3) I’ve neglected to tell people I love and value that I love and value them.

(4) Coming to terms with God and the ultimate questions of life matters.

What did September 11th teach you?

  1. September 11 taught me that we take our great United States of America for granted.
    September 11 taught me that if you ignore problems they will not go away and will turn into larger problems.
    September 11 reminded me of the sacrifices our servicemen make every day. Local forces and national forces. They walk in danger daily and we forget to thank them for the job they do.
    September 11 made me thankful that God allows us to live in this blessed country where for the most part we are safer and more secure than most countries in the world.

  2. Sept 11 taught me to always keep the things I really care about close to my heart. The love of my family, and the hope I have in Christ. I know the end of this earth is destruction, and the time of its end is unknown. So — I make my choices based on whether or not I’m living out my faith and whether or not my family knows our future in eternity. Aside from that, it’s hard to keep in mind, but every day is destruction for someone, and every day there is an opportunity to remember our hope. When those two things balance each other, it’s just a matter of waiting.
