Thursday, September 11, 2008
I thought I would take a brief moment and reminisce about my September 11, 2001 experience. I had started my first semester of college (maybe a week into it if that). I went to my 8 o'clock class where the professor asked if anyone had heard about the World Trade Center (I hadn't). I went home immediately after that class since I had a break and a roommate who had also just got home from a class had just turned the tv on and we watched the footage over and over and when they got new footage we'd watch that over and over like a train wreck you can't look away from. I remember feeling so bad for all of the victims and their families, I remember worrying about what this meant as far as a war in our future (especially since at the time I was dating someone in boot camp for the Marines-selfish, I know). I was so grateful for the knowledge that God loves us and is watching over us. I remember feeling hope among the chaos and worry. What do you remember?
