IT TOOK ONLY MOMENTS... BUT TAKES MORE THAN THAT!



Knee Mail Doesn't Fail...

So, here I am praying
for all who lost a loved one, who lost kin on 9-11.

For the mothers and fathers, who lost sons and daughters;
for the children now without mothers, without fathers;
for the wives without husbands; husbands without wives.

So many lives, so many tears cried
for those who had nowhere to run, nowhere to hide...
all those who suffered, all those who died.

Such an enormous tragedy, such devastation
which set off chains of reaction;
a marked time we will never forget.

Gone are aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, many others
leaving holes in hearts, hearts torn apart.

Yet, although we have no control over fate,
God is good, God is great!
He made a special place place for them all to go;
He keeps them comforted and they are safe
where they are loved and held dear as they are here
but without enemy, without foe.

But left behind still so much grief  and for those who bear it, no relief...

Knee mail never fails, so here I am praying...

Even thought it's now been 10 years, I don't think any of us will ever get over it. Everyone I know was hit close by this one day.

My prayers and heart goes out to them as well! It's been a couple of years now, but I'm sure the memory and pain is almost still the same for those who have lost a love one through it..

It's sweet of you to post this message and remember 9-11, Audrey!

What a wonderful prayer Audrey. I don't think any of us can erase the images of that day. May God keep the families of those that have died in His loving arms. God Bless you Audrey for this beautiful prayer.

Oh, what a lovely prayer. Though it has been 10 years, it seems as if it was only yesterday. I was in Washington DC a week and a half after the attack. It was like a ghost town. The city was so sad and quiet. Reagan airport was not opened so we flew into Dullas. While in DC, Reagan opened. I flew out of Reagan on the second flight after the airport opened. The first night we were in DC, we rode over to see the Pentagon. That image is forever in my mind. Acouple of monts later I went to New York. and of course we went to Ground Zero. I will never forget the smell there,much less how it looked. Oh, so sad.
