"Yea, Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for You are with me..."

From online news organizations:  

  • Planes hit the World Trade Center in New York City. Both towers collapsed.

  • A plane hit the Pentagon, part of which collapsed.

  • "American Airlines told CNN that it lost two planes in "tragic accidents:" Flight 11 from Boston with 81 passengers and 11 crew aboard and Flight 77 from Washington Dulles airport with 58 passengers and six crew aboard. Both planes were en route to Los Angeles." 

  • A United Airlines flight from Newark, NJ to San Francisco crashed near Somerset, Pennsylvania.

  • All flights have been grounded for the first time ever.

  • Government buildings are being evacuated.

  My heart is breaking for those whose lives are directly impacted by the tragic events of today, and all of it's ramifications for the rest of our earthly days.

I wish I could take away these terrible losses, say something so profound that it would ease the pain.  But there are no words that can express my heart feelings, or that can offer comfort to the families who have suffered so much loss.  All I can do is pray that The Great Comforter will provide the pathway of recovery for each individual, our nation, and this world.

We mourn all those who perished so senselessly...the passengers and pilots of the crashed flights, the workers and visitors in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the firemen, and all the people in and around the attacked areas. Our thoughts and our prayers are with you and your families.

Life gone in an instant
With blasts of hate from air
Caught within a moment
This deed brings such despair

Contemplate this evil
What good has this deed done
Left us filled with hatred
This battle never won

Torn with mass destruction
Deliberate hate designed
For only in one instant
Deep sorrow for mankind

Families filled with horror
Hearts are filled with tears
Within us saddest moment
What purpose brings us here

Let us join united
To say a silent prayer
For those who were the victims
Their voices we must hear

People joining hands now
Creating biggest chain
Bringing forth a miracle
Where evil brought such pain

Innocent are dead now
What power does this give
Lost within the horror
But yet we all must live

Fear cannot bring power
For deep inside hate looms
The power of the people
In silent prayer resumes

Hands that reached so bravely
To help those find a way
With hearts of grateful nation
We bow our heads and pray

For all those who are lost now
On this most dreaded day
We pray that God will give us
The strength to find a way.
