While we are out of the direct path of the storm, I realize that many others are not as fortunate. This looks to be quite a lengthy event for many, many people. I understand the anxiety a little more clearly now after a couple of days of anticipating the worst here in our own locale. My thoughts and prayers for all those bracing and preparing for the hit.
We also remember 9/11 today. Just saying those two numbers brings up vivid memories and images for people all across the country and even the world. On the other hand, 17 years have now come and gone since that horrendous day. The younger generation does not know this event from first-hand experience. I sometimes wonder what they are taught when this subject is covered in school. What type of perspective is presented as details about the day are shared? How does this event impact the next generation of political leaders?
It seems that there are never any shortages of difficulties and challenges in life to get our attention. Let us be people of prayer always seeking to build up the Kingdom of God.
