Remembering the Fallen
What Does 9/11 Know?
It knows the smell of burning flesh and smoke
It knows the sound of innocent people screaming
It knows the feeling was horrible and death defying
It sees the World Trade Centers falling down onto the ground
It knows the sound was planes zooming over the city
It knows the taste was dust and smoke
What does 9/11 know?
May we candidly speak to our children about the tragedies that unfolded in our country on 9/11 many years ago. May we help them remember the fallen and celebrate the heroes. May we show them how to mourn with those who mourn. May we encourage them to live in the truth that “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3
And, may we all have childlike hope for the redemption that is to come.
