Like most other Americans, I have not been able to escape the reflections on that day 5 years ago. Has it really been 5 years? As I watched the President speak, and then the special docudrama on ABC, several thoughts overwhelmed me:
Life is fragile.
People are capable of extreme heroism.
People are capable of horrific evil.
There is a fine line between pride and arrogance.
Evil must be overcome with good.
Can there ever be peace on earth?
Have Americans learned anything?
Is the war on terror really happening because some people don't like democracy? Don't like us?
God of peace, Father of the Prince of Peace, may your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
