Remembering September 11, 2001

September 11, 2021

Twenty years have passed, but memories have not faded.  They are memories that recall the deep emotions of fear, anger, and loss. Yet it is important for us to pause today and remember.

Today we remember all who lost their lives at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Their families have had to find a way to endure these past two decades without a cherished loved one by their side.  Children have grown up without a father or a mother.  Holidays and anniversaries and birthday gatherings that were devoid of joy.  Never being able to say goodbye has created an emptiness.  Being robbed of saying the many things they never had a chance to say, plays like a tape recording in their minds.   

Let us remember and pray.
