I can tell you right where I was when I heard about the terrorist attacks. I was standing in the East hall in the Charles City Middle School when one of my friends said the Chinese were bombing us (that was when we didn’t know who was behind this horrific act). I didn’t believe her, no one believed her. I regret that know. I was in my industrial tech class in the second row and third seat from the door, right in front of the tv, watching the plane crash into the second tower. I just sat there shocked at what I was seeing. I thought that I was watching a movie. After about ten minutes i had realized what had happened. Right then I just started praying for the firefighters, paramedics, victoms trapped inside and out, and the families of those who had to suffer. I must say that I prayed for each and every one of those terrorists. I prayed that God’s wrath wouldn’t be too much, that he would still show some compassion when one else could.
I knew God was there with everyone of victoms, firefighters, paramedics, family members, pilots, passengers, and terrorists. He was also with everyone who had been watching, was watching, and would be watching.
I want everyone to know that I will pray for them and God is with them. Remember love your enemies.
