As with most folks, September 11th is a tough day for me. Caught up in the strong emotions of reliving that day I find myself feeling as hurt and as angry I was those nine years ago. I pray for those that lost their lives that day and for their friends and families. I pray for those brave souls that protect us still today. I pray for us all.
And then the Lord opens my eyes and fills them with the beauty of this world and the quiet at the end of this day. As I sit here and photograph this beautiful scene I feel the warmth of His touch. I will never forget but I pray someday to forgive.
