Do you remember where you were when you got the news. I was in a board meeting when some one came in and announced that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. Like most, we thought, what a terrible accident. When news came of the second plane hitting the second tower, and there was no doubt that it was a terrorist attack, work virtually came to a halt as staff were glued to their radios to find out more about what was going on. No one ever expected this kind of murderous act to be carried out on our soil. But, in one horrible day, we found ourselves fully engaged in the war on terrorism. I think we now know how our parents felt when the news of Pearl Harbor reached their ears. We were horrified, stunned, and angered, all at once. My heart still breaks for those who lost loved ones on that day, especially those who never found any sign of their loved one, to give them closure. Many lives just vanished. That would be almost too painful to bear. But the spirit that resides in those left behind has been most admirable. and, on Sunday, 9/11/11 they will have a memorial to visit and honor those who were taken from them. Often times music speaks to me better than mere words and this is one of those times. Few say it any better than Gloria Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band. May those who suffered loss on that day find closure and a measure of peace in this memorial.
