10 Years Ago...

10 years ago on 9/11 I was a junior in high school and changing classes walking into my PSAT class. My best friend, Malorie, walked in and told the teacher there was something important happening and asked if we could watch the news. Our teacher flipped the tv on and we sat and watched the first tower as it was billowing smoke from the top. Fear took the air out of the room. Was it an accident?

We quickly realized this wasn't an accident as we watched the next plane crash into the 2nd tower. Questions were filling the room. It was unbelievable. Then, we saw shots of the pentagon and heard about the field in Shanksville, PA.

The rest of the day was an absolute blur. I thought that God would surely come back on this day because what else could go wrong?

Silly me, God's plan is not always what we think it will be. He let our country come together and support one another. People called out to God for the first time in a long time, gave to others, and spent time with their family.

As the anniversary is here again, I pray for those who lost their family and friend, our leadership, our heroes, and our safety. Please hold your loved ones tight and let them know you love them.
