In memory of 9/11

Posted by thelamp on September 11, 2006

My fellow Americans,

Today marks the five-year anniversary of the most horrific and deliberate attack upon America, as well as the most heroic this country has seen.

The acts of the terrorists leading up to and on 9/11 was a display of despicable behavior; and a sad reminder of how hard and lost people’s hearts and morals can ever be.  Our country has seen many horrible events; but like in those times, we have prevailed.  I am certain that many people–like me–questioned within themselves how people could do such a horrible thing.

But among the ashes I was encouraged to see a light that shined.  I heard stories of heroes who, like our military, placed themselves in harms way to protect and to serve.  Those heroes–the police officers, fire fighters, and even ordinary citizens–sacrificed themselves so that maybe one person could be saved.  God bless those who gave of themselves that day and the days shortly after.

Today, September 11, 2006, five years after that tragedy, marks not only a sad day in America’s history but a beginning of change.  Since those days, direction, purpose, and vision were brought into question.  Many people began to realize that what we thought was important was not as important as we had made it to be.  With the loss of close to 3,000 lives, we found ourselves questioning our purpose and our final destinations.  I encourage everyone who have not done so, find the Truth and may He set you free.

Today, our nation grieves with the families who lost moms, dads, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters on that dreadful day.  However, we should be encouraged that although those events were tragic on September 11, 2001, we can take strength in knowing that if we unite in vision, hope, and purpose we can overcome.

God bless our soldiers.  God bless our police and firefighters.  God bless those families who were personally touched as a result of that day.  Finally, God bless America. 

Sincerely,

Robert Williams
The Lamp President
