September 11th 2001 was one of the worse days of my life. I had a niece in New York City and a nephew in Washington DC, thankfully they were alright. As I sat and watched this act of terrorism unfold live on network television I was overcome with emotion, sitting there with tears streaming down my face. Many factors made me react the way I did, watching as lives ended right before my eyes was overwhelming, it also may have been that my late father had fought in World War 2 to keep this type of thing from happening. My Dad instilled a sense of duty and honor to serve for your country so I volunteered for the draft in 1971 and served 7 and a half years in the ARMY, again to keep this type of thing from happening. Sadly it may have been the reality that this type of thing can happen here in America just like anywhere else in the world. I pray today for all victims of terrorism throughout the world. In the words of John Lennon "All we are asking is give peace a chance"!
To each there own, the Shephers's Psalm is a good scripture to know in times of fear
The lord is my shepherd; i shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
he restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
