No...I Never Will Forget.

You say you'll never forget where you were when you heard the news on September 11, 2001...neither will I.

I was on the 110 floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say goodbye, I held his fingers steady as he dialed - I gave him the peace to say...honey I'm not gonna make it, but it's okay - I'm ready to go.

I was with his wife when he called, as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words, and then she realized he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in a stairwell on the 23rd floor, when a woman cried out to Me for help. I've been knocking on the door of your heart for fifty years, I said of course I'll show you the way home, only believe in Me now.

I was in the basement of the building where a priest ministered to the injured and the devastated souls, I took him home to tend his flock in heaven, he heard my voice and answered.

I was with the crew as they were overtaken, I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith had saved them. I was in Texas, Kansas, London...I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news, did you sense me?

I want you to know that I saw every face,  I knew every name, though not all knew Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86 floor. Some sought me with their last breath. Some couldn't hear Me calling them through the smoke and flames...come to Me - this way, take My hand. Some chose for the final time to ignore Me, but I was there.

I did not place YOU in the tower that day, you may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me?

September 11, 2001 was not the end of a journey for you, but some day your journey will end, and I'll be there for you as well.

 Seek Me now while I may be found...
...then at any moment you know you are ready to go.
