10 Years... Already?

Wow. I cannot believe that it has been 10 years since September 11, 2001. I remember it like it was yesterday...

 I was ten years old when 9/11 happened. I was in bed sleeping, when one of my younger siblings came into my bedroom and woke me up. They kept saying, "A plane flew into one of the World Trade Center buildings! Come see it on the TV!" 

Really, quite frankly, I didn't even know what the WTC was so I was thinking "Umm... what's the big deal?" Well, when I came into the living room only one of the towers was hit. I got up in time to see this happen a few minutes later...

As I watched, the towers actually started collapsing, which to my 10 yr old mind was boggling because it was such a strong, big tower, right? It's actually more of a shock to me now because I'm older and comprehend the impact this had.


 To just see those buildings collapse into this was eerie. But through it all, God was there - he had a purpose for this, though I don't know why.


I saw... and I remember.

You did good with this post.
Do you really remember it? I was not told about it until about four days later and even then I didn't really know much about it.
