Even though details are different, I can't help seeing the painful comparison. Here we are in America, because we believe in FREEDOM. And someone over in another part of the world doesn’t like it. So, they make us watch as those we know and love, die for their beliefs.
How many times can mankind do this to each other? Throughout history, there have been horrific reminders that the “natural man is an enemy to God.” From Cain to Hitler to bin Laden, Satan will use whoever will do his bidding.
Thankfully, there came good from this day. I remember for the next couple weeks, feeling like every stranger I met was a friend. We shared something in common. I remember the feeling of patriotism that filled just about everyone. People you didn’t know were saying “God Bless,” flags were flown, blood banks were overfilled. In spite of the tragedy, we got to see what America really is; a bunch of great people in this thing together. Thank you to all the unsung heroes.
I know I just posted about a song, but I really love this Alan Jackson one… it sums up my feelings exactly.
God Bless America!
