Where I was 10 years ago...

I know each American knows exactly where they were when the attacks of 9/11/01 occurred.  I was a senior in high school and I was one of the first ones in school to hear about the attacks as I was in a weight lifting class and we have the radio blasting as we work out.  I know our teacher was confused and left for a minute and we all stopped lifting looked confused and headed to the locker room.  My next class was science class and our classes combined with history and we turned on the TV and discussed and watched everything on the news.  At that moment I was still in shock and had no emotions.  When I got home from school that day I sat down with my mom and we both shared some tears.  It seemed like the week went by slow as we continued to see the replay on the news of the towers falling.  I know we were praying for more survivors to be found and watched waiting to hear that a life was saved.  
The cross that was left at ground zero. 

"I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” Psalm 121:1-2 NLT

There were some brave hero's that day!  I pray today that families who lost a loved one that day have a healed heart and now have a relationship with Jesus and a testimony to share!

I had the opportunity to visit ground 0 in 2003 when I went on a road trip with  college friend and her mom and brother.  We had a great time but we made sure to stop at ground 0.  Almost 2 years had passed and it was still a major clean up.

Where were you?
