Where Were You?....

It has been 10 years since that fateful day that took so many lives, and changed so many as well. I was in Washington, D.C. that day, about to go out with my sister. I know God was watching out for us, because I was supposed to have gotten up about 7:00 that morning to start getting ready to go out with my sister Talitha. She got off work at that time and would be home to get ready to take me out for a little while. But that morning I had the worst back ache I had ever had, seriously I couldn't even move. I kept praying that the pain would cease so I could get up, because I knew my sister would be mad if I wasn't ready by the time she got home. I just could not do it though, and that my friends was God! He knew that we did not need to be in that place, and intervened. My uncle had called us and told us to turn on the TV, that America was under attack, and like flipping on a light switch my back stopped hurting. I could finally move! Praise God!! My sister and I may have not been in the area of the Pentagon, but still he kept us out of harms way. I want to thank all the service men and women that fight to keep this country free and safe. Soon my sister Talena will be one of those women to do this, and I pray that God keeps her safe. Talena became engaged Friday night to her sweet heart Shaun. I just pray that God is the leader in their lives and watches over them where ever they go. God Bless America!!!

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)
