  1. I was at my bank on that day and the tellers told me. I had to get to work, I was busy cutting hair that day with the TV on and in shock. I remember having people over to watch the news and explain to my 9 yr old what was going on. I believe the truth needs to be told to children so I did not hide it from her. It was a learning experience. I cried.

  2. President Obama read Psalm 46:

    1 God is our refuge and strength,
    A very present help in trouble.
    2 Therefore we will not fear,
    Even though the earth be removed,
    And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
    3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,
    Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

    4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
    The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
    5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
    God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
    6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
    He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

    7 The LORD of hosts is with us;
    The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

    8 Come, behold the works of the LORD,
    Who has made desolations in the earth.
    9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
    He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
    He burns the chariot in the fire.

    10 Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth!

    11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
    The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

  3. I was at work when the news came across the radio on 9/11/01. I had a tv/radio combo so I turned the tv on and saw the events of that day unfold. I cried. I was in shock. I left work to go to my church for intercessory prayers. We didn’t know the extent of the attacks but I knew we needed God’s protection and intervention. An unbelievable and unthinkable morning, yet truth and reality is forever embedded in that day.

  4. I was at work when I heard the news. My boss’s husband called and said a plane crashed into the World Trade Center. I honestly didn’t know what or where that was. I tried to get on the internet but the internet was very slow. Once I saw the images I was horrified. It was a very scary time and it is still scary today. My heart and prayers go out to all of those who lost loved ones that day.
