It was a day that changed our nation



As the memories from 6 years ago return today, may each of us remember and pray for all those affected by the events, six years ago, in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington DC.


I'm sure we can remember the moment when we heard about the attacks in NY and the planes down in PA and at the Pentagon.


I know we can still reach out to others, showing God's love for all. We can have faith and hope in Him and share His love with those around us. We need to fill our children with faith and love because we don't know what the future holds. We need to give them the hope and strength that only our Heavenly Father can comfort us with.


Moms - today, let us share how we can fill our children with love for others. What can we do today, in the lives of our children, to affect their future?

I know one way - to pray. If you haven't visisted this parent's prayer blog, please do - and pray together with us, for our children.


Let us remember those who gave their lives and let us never forget.

A beautiful post. I know I have not forgotten 911, it touched everyone. I do pray for the families of the loved ones that were killed that day. What a tragedy, it does seem just like yesterday. I will check out the prayer blog. Thanks for your words!
God Bless!

I heard a little boy talking to his mom today about 9-11. He was so upset and trying to explain to her what took place. He began crying as he talked about the lost firemen. His little heart was breaking at the thought of firemen dying to save others. His mother couldn't even begin to explain "why". His little brother was not even born when this all happened.

It's history now, but never will it be forgotten...
