This September will be 20 years since the 9-11 attacks. After the attacks, it changed people. Church attendance went up. There was a surge of American patriotism. A phrase became a “war-cry” – Never Forget.
I remember where I was. I remember watching, praying, crying. I remember.
“Never forget” was the idea that we would remember:
Remember those who lost their lives, families who lost loved ones.
Remember we were people who sacrificed for others.
Remember we were stronger together.
Remember our moral foundation, our freedoms, our liberty.
Remember we were a nation under attack. Other nations don’t like our freedom.
I would argue that lately, over time, we have forgotten, or at least our action proves America, as a nation, has forgotten those messages.
We don’t care about our fellow man. Rather than find common ground we find what divides us. Our freedom and liberty are under fire.
If it only took 20 years for us to forget that tragic day…do we remember the Biblical truths written 2000 years ago? Or have we forgotten those as well?
