Forever Remember...

Nine years ago today, innocent lives were lost because of an act of terror against this country. Families and friends still mourn to this day the beloved ones who were taken. My prayer is that we will never forget the heroism of those who risked their lives to save others, and the brave, brave souls who were steadfast in the face of terror and violence, as they met eternity. May we never take for granted the freedoms we hold so dear here in the United States. May we embrace liberty, the gift of life, and the pursuit of happiness. May we fly our flags to honor those who are no longer with us, and to honor all that we cherish here. Freedom is not free. We've been given the greatest gifts to live, speak, love, worship, and enterprise in freedom here in the US. My heart was encouraged mightily this afternoon in the City of Brotherly Love, good ol' Philly, where over fifteen thousand women gathered in faith & worship. The climax of the day could have been a number of treasured moments, but in light of September 11, it was Sandi Patty leading us all in "God Bless America" with her stunning voice, and the fifteen thousand ladies' voices echoing throughout the amphitheater. In that moment we remembered. In that moment we gave worship & honor to God our Savior. In that moment we celebrated the freedom & blessings of this great nation. We are blessed to be a blessing. Let us always remember...


In honor...here is a song I wrote nine years ago after that tragic day...
