The Road to Sixty – Day 61
So today everyone has mentioned, discussed, gone back in time 18 years ago.
We call it 9-11.
I have found myself several times today, thinking back.
You see each generation has their REMEMBERING moments.
For me, here is a list of things that stick out to me…
The assassination of John F. Kennedy
The Landing on the Moon
The Riots in Alabama
The End of the Vietnam War
George Wallace being shot (only those from Alabama might know who this is)
The Challenger Explosion
The day that Paul Bear Bryant died.
The bombing of Beirut
The Gulf War – Begins
The Oklahoma City Bombing
The World Trade Center – Pentagon – Pennsylvania
These are etched in my mind and there are others that would make this list much longer.
These are things that have touched the hearts of countless people and we remember.
Sometimes it is dates – maybe it’s the place – maybe it is where you were, what you were doing. These things that are embedded like a history book.
Except you lived it.
Each one of could make this list, some could go further back, The Great depression, WWII, Korea.
We have that memory.
We mark it on the calendar, make memorials, write it into the history books and journals and newspapers. It is documented through photos, video and now live streamed.
So we will REMEMBER…and NEVER FORGET!
Tonight I will pray for peace just like I do every night.
Thanking God for this place I live in!
