The Day America Cried OUT


The alarm clock buzzing loudly so I would get up out of bed to start my day's work cleaning up the Resevoir so the visitors of the park would have clean restrooms and garbage cans to use during the day. It usually took me about four hours to get every thing done before the visitors would be there. When I finished with everything I had to do, I would travel to the local store it was only a couple of miles down the road from the Park. It was a regular habit for me to do. Once I arrived at the store I usually stood around for a few brief moments talking to the store owner.


As I walked into the store Jerry asked if I had seen the News yet this morning ? I said no what is going on ? He told me the United states is being attacked,by terrorists my responce was yeah right and when did this happen. He looked at me saying it's happening now take a look. He turned the small television he had sitting on the counter behind him so I could see the news broadcast. To my surprise it was real,I saw a jet fly into the first tower I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I felt terror,in my heart the first thing I thought of was all the people who were scrambling for their life and how could this really be happening. I immediately headed out the front door jumped into my truck and started to head back up the mountain road to the resevoir.


This time the two miles seemed to take longer to travel thoughts were racing through my mind of how could some body do this on purpose to deliberatly kill for the joy of hurting or getting even. I thought of the people who were in the building and seen the jet coming their way knowing it wasn't high enough to miss the building. How terrified they must have been I thought of their loved ones that would never see them again. Finally I get back to the trailer turning, the news on another jet crashed into the second tower. The towers were starting to fall, people were screaming as they were running to get out of the way from the debre of the first falling tower.


I witnessed a person jumping from the second tower to their death down below, so frightened and filled with terror their first reaction was to jump. I started praying for the people who were losing their lives,the children who were going to be left with out a parent or maybe even both parents. I thought of the firemen who had to enter the building to save, lives if it was at all possible,and the firemen who lost their lives while simply doing there job. The news wasn't just happening in New York City there was a third plane that hit the pentagon in Washington D.C. a fourth that had crashed due to the heroic Americans that crashed the plane trying to abort the attack where ever the terrorists were headed.


The news went on for days and even months of the attack it had a real effect on me mentally I couldn't sleep at night I finally made an appointment with my doctor to see if he could write me a script for a few sleeping pills. Eventually things started to fall back to normal I started to get back into my normal sleep habits It was a very frightening experience I'll never forget.


Mightiest Of Powers


Jehovah my Father mightiest of powers have you seen what Satan has done to the once standing Towers? He showered them with hatred and death. That is what cowards will do Killing Fathers,Mothers,Sisters,Brothers even there children too. The world is in mourning Jehovah sent warning of Satan's miraculous doom. This we can count on Jehovahs word is Faithful and True. Soon there after Jehovah My Father Mightiest Of Powers will make all things new.

grateful for the comment moderation so you can choose to display or not but you get a chance to read and I can speak freely then outwith self-censoring.

I figured you probably aren't jewish because you would have said Ha Shem or Adonai instead of Jehovah my Father. And your poem at the end very reminiscent of the Psalms. Have you re-read Psalm 137 lately. Most people know it from the pop song by Boney M, By the ribers of babylon, perhaps as a hymn song from that. Last verse doesn't hold back at all do it.

I just wondered if you got any further, beyond these people are cowards sent by satan they do this for joy and to get even, my enemy has a black heart, my enemy does not love their children as we do. And you do realise they say the same of us. In fact if you replaced Jehovah with Allah the rest is how they talk. Did you ever wonder about that.

I thought your other reflections equally moving, you can always be more reflective move on to other places but only when you ready, when it's a real move, and not because you think you will sound nicer, holier, wiser. So i guess you are ok for an amurkan.

say what you like on my blog, i like untidyness, i find the comment verification gets rid of the junk mail advertising, if someone took the time to post a comment even just a throw-away line.

Why be a writer if you don't wish to be read? that and I am one of those namby pamby liberals who believe in freedom of speech because I am more civilised than you are, and yet I retain both humility and modesty. Grace just praise the giver, I am nothing but what I have received. 10p if you can quote me the reference for that one outwith google search.

oh yeah and i am convinced just looking for things to make me quake, like i said if you tink it makes the place look untidy feel free to debate on my site, unfortunately what your country is doing seems to be effecting mine, i accept we have little direct say in what our countries do, but little is better than nowt.
