September 11


Post links below, and your memoirs of 911 here....

Feel free to copy and paste this if you wish and send it to your friends family,congressmen, senate...whom ever..


You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news
On September 11, 2001. Neither will I. I was on the 110th floor in a smoke
filled room with a man who called his wife to say "Good-Bye." I held his
fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, "Honey, I am
not going to make it, but it is OK...I am ready to go."

I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children.
I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he
wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for
help. "I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!" I
said. "Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now."

I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured
and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven.
He heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with
the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers
there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them.

I was in Texas, Kansas, London. I was standing next to you when you heard
the terrible news. Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all
know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.

Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames;
"Come to Me... this way... take my hand." Some chose, for the final time,
to ignore Me.

But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do.
However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you
have reached for Me?

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you. But someday
your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now
while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready
to go."

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are doing, and take this
opportunity. (Literally it is only 1 minute.) All you have to do is the following:

You simply say an "Our Father" for the person that sent you this message:

Our Father who are in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom Come,
Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and
lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory, forever and ever Amen.

Next, you send this message to everyone you know. In a while, more people
will have prayed for you and you would have obtained a lot of people praying
for others.

Next, stop and think and appreciate God's power in your life, for doing what
you know is pleasing to him.

If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the instructions.

Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before My Father"

If you are not ashamed, send this message...only if you believe. "Yes, I love my
God. He is my fountain of Life and My Savior. He Keeps me going day and night.

Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do everything. Christ is my strength."

Hey You!
Are you insane yet? Left you a message last week. I need to know the name of the alternate to the Hilton (less expensive?) hotel you mentioned. I guess I could just arrive with a dress and a suitcase but I don't know how Caroline would feel about that!

The shock, disbelief, sadness and strength in NYC is indescribable. I am sure this is true throughout the country and the world. I have received calls from Ireland to S. Africa checking on us and EVEN my ex-long term boyfriend who has not spoken to me in 10 years.

The City below 14th Street, where I live, is bizarre and surreal. Almost silent except for primarily emergency vehicles and the occasional F16 flying over. No newspapers, deliveries and strange smokey scents waft through the otherwise brilliantly blue sky. The support of family, friends and strangers gives hope in humanity. In my and Caroline's immediate circle everyone seems to be OK. That cannot begin to alleviate the grief for all the others.

I am so sorry for everyone and you to have this tragedy the week before your wedding. It is hard right now to do even the most basic things, eat, shower, sleep normal hours much less work. It all seams so relatively mundane. I do not normally even watch TV but my friends
and I find ourselves glued and channel surfing for hours. Not to listen to the macabre recaps and banal reviews but in the hope that they have found people alive. Alternately I go out and walk around and see friends for some solace. Almost everyone seems stunned and those who are a little too buoyant and cheery I find hard to deal with right now.

I wonder how you're holding up and whether your plans remain fixed. As you no doubt know, planes are not yet flying anywhere near normal here. Caroline was hoping to buy a last minute inexpensive ticket and I was planning to fly on my sis-in-laws stand-by American Airlines pass. Both of those options seem impossible now. I cannot imagine that even by Saturday anything near normalcy will return.

Whatever you have decided I send you nothing but love and my best wishes.
PS: I left you a message in Chicago. If there are people you are still trying to reach in NYC, try several times in a row. I have had to do this up to 5 times and finally end up getting trough. This is the 1st time I have even been able to get on-line since Monday. I am trying to keep phone usage minimal as the circuits are still often jammed. xox
