Remembering


September 11, 2001. Who can ever forget that fateful day when the twin towers fell in New York City due to a terrorist attack at 8:46 a.m. One of my grandsons had his eighteenth birthday that day and said his birthday would never be the same again. I was reading a passage in scripture this morning, Isaiah 30:25 “In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall…” This had nothing to do with 9/11…or did it?

A montage of eight images depicting, from top to bottom, the World Trade Center towers burning, the collapsed section of the Pentagon, the impact explosion in the South Tower, a rescue worker standing in front of rubble of the collapsed towers, an excavator unearthing a smashed jet engine, three frames of video depicting American Airlines Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon

One thought on “Remembering

  1. I felt this event keenly, as did tens of millions. I grew up in New Jersey looking at the twin towers across the Hudson sound. As a high school student, I stood on top of one tower and could barely see the people on the street below. And then they were gone, along with our naivete. I have the countries major newspapers and magazines with the first-day and first-week coverage. I still ache. I visited the grounds in 2013 and 2017 with troops of boy scouts. I ached. Ground zero has become a place of beauty and hope.
