Remember

Monday marks the fifth anniversary of the infamous terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, as well as the heroic efforts of the passengers of Flight 93.

It is my privilege to participate with many other bloggers in an effort to commemorate each of the 2, 996 victims of the WTC.

This post is in memory of George Llanes, age 33, resident of New York. I did not know George or anything about him, but I sincerely hope that his death does not go unpunished. I pray that God’s grace and peace will be with those who loved him and that through this horrendous set of circumstances, they will be drawn closer to Him.

You can read more about this memorial as well as other victims at this website.

May they never be forgotten.

  1. May we never forget…and may God comfort all of us in our loss of innocence.

  2. Gordon,
    It seems that there are far too many people who forget what we need to do. One of them is not forgetting we were attacked, then, took the war to them.
    It grieves my heart everytime I view a film clip of the towers in flame, and falling, thinking of those thousands who died that day.
    What are people thinking when they suggest that we give up and come home. What and allow the terrorists to attack again? I pray not.

  3. JG, Amen.

    TA, I agree. If we give up now, those who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks will go unpunished, and our soldiers who have died will have died for nothing.

    We can’t afford to let that happen.

  4. May the good Lord continue to touch the hearts of those afflicted by this horrible spectacle, whether the civilian victims, or the men and woman among the firefighters and police.

  5. Gordon,

  6. Thank you all for your prayers for my state! It has been especially difficult here lately with that 9/11 movie that has come out. Why anyone would think we would want to sit through that, is beyond me!

    For people who went through it, we sure don’t want to pay to relive it again.

    I don’t think people realize that for tens of thousands of people, planes, loud sounds, and even people running can trigger trauma attacks for those that are suffering from post-traumatic stress.

    A CDC study found that more that 6 in 10 survivors who fled buildings are still suffering today.

    Please pray for the survivors, that God will strengthen them and give them the peace to go on and come out the other side of this terrible pain!

  7. Gordon,

    Thank you for sharing:-) The Lord sends His Words & Heal All!

    For God halth not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, & love & of a sound mind.
