I would not mind having television so we could share in the remembrances of that day 9 years ago that struck the country to its knees.
I can still remember spending the day with the television up at our tiny little rural church while we all stood there, no one fully comprehending the depth of devastation that was occurring before our very eyes.
While it is deeply sad to watch and remember, I hope they replay the events of that day again so that people WILL remember. Too many have already lost that depth of emotion and the deepening reach of community and Faith those events created for months.
We need that reminder. We need to try to find that 'reason' again for our Troops being kept so far away from their homes and families. We need that reminder so we can reclaim a bit of that emotion that sparked so many to some form of action in their communities.
We have very little in this country to take pride in anymore; we are more a hateful nation than a United States of America. We need to see that footage, hear those cries across the television screens, and be reminded of what we were able to do, together, as a country in those many months where we stood tall and strong and united.
Don't turn away from the television today. Stand there and remember. It was one of the few things that truly changed the hearts of the so-hardened in the country 9 years ago. Be reminded. And as you start talking about "change" in this country with the new elections and all those career government folks start lining your screen with their empty words, remember those emotions you had for a country brought to its knees once, but who stood back up strong and united for a time. Then you can make that true change happen and stop feeling so helpless.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
