On this day in 2001, this country was attacked by Al Qaeda terrorists. 4 passenger planes were hijacked. The 1st hit the North Tower of the WTC. The 2nd hit the South Tower. The 3rd struck the Pentagon. But, the 4th plane, UA93, didn't make it 2 its target. It was headed 4 either the Capitol or the White House. A group of rouge passengers lead by Todd Beamer fought the hijackers, and the plane crashed near Shanksville, PA. There were no survivors. At the time, I was 1 year old. When the news came on, my parents put me in my room while they watched the news. So today, I encourage U to take some time 2 sit in silence as we remember the people who died that day.
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
-Psalm 23, NKJV
