Hope for me this day

I wasn’t going to post today, but then, I saw this picture and it reminded me of the view I had from my balcony. I was there that day, in Midtown, so no where near the towers. I did have to walk home (about a few hours) over the Queensboro bridge, looking back at smoke and ash, seeing the throngs of people behind me all walking. I spent the next week with the shades drawn and unable to leave the television. Shock. It’s hard to explain all of the feelings and thoughts and yet I feel that I have no right as I didn’t lose anyone personally and I was not hurt. I just witnessed and felt pangs of sadness and awe.

I was reminded of the hope this view brought me as I thought of every soul pushing through to heaven to be with God. No longer scared, no longer afraid, no longer in pain. This brought me such solace that I wanted to share it with all of you.

911

God Bless you always. I pray for all of the souls lost in this tragedy of 9/11 and pray for those who miss them. I pray for our leaders and our future. I pray for you.
