The Next Day, Going Forward

Today is September 12th, 9-12, and after the infamous day nine years ago, many looked to the following day, this day, symbolically as a call to action – 9-11 being the wake-up call. Initially of course it wasn’t seen as that, people dwelling on the carnage and the anger as well as seeking some answers. In looking for answers, people began to see the larger perspectives and realized that we’d been living fairly insulated lives with an adolescent kind of belief that we’re invincible, blithely apathetic and ignorant to what has been occurring in our nation, let alone in the wider world. A couple of years ago, a few people began tapping into these realizations and felt that the aftermath of 9-11 should not be only reaction, but more importantly, action. “Never again!” coupled with, “Return to founding principles and core values.”

In the immediate aftermath and months after Sept. 11th, churches across America saw their pews swell with people; from absentee members to new faces. People were looking for answers; there was anger, sorrow, fear and confusion in response to the massacre. It went beyond what can happen locally after a school shooting or some other “senseless” mass murder or accident because the attacks were clearly calculated to hit the nation as a whole on an emotional level, not just the people of NYC or Washington DC. Many people are either unaware of it or ignore it, but we all have a God-shaped hole in us, needing and waiting to be filled. Is it any wonder that thru history man has looked at the stars and the world, realizing there is something greater than him, that he needs something more than what he can provide on his own? ...

I hope I am even-handed, but more imporantly, speaking truth.

...there was anger, sorrow, fear and confusion in response to the massacre.

As an eye-witness to the attack in NYC I can safely say that the only response from me was, has been and will continue to be, anger! Now however, that anger is not only directed at islam, but also at the feckless, corrupt and traitorous "leaders" of our affiliation be damned!
