my high school celebrated a special mass outside today...all parents were invited and those who were police officers, firefighters, doctors, nurses, and those involved in the military were honored. i realized that we should thank these wonderful people each day for going to work and saving lives. today we prayed right before we held a moment of silence for the fallen victims and heroes in new york, washington d.c., and those on the planes. the priest who celebrated our mass told us a story about when he was in a church in new york many years ago and a old woman called him asking for two boys to shovel the snow in front of her house. he sent her two boys and he found out that one of those boys had become a firefighter and died trying to save people in the WTC. it's stories like this that make me feel like crying. the magnitude of this hasnt quite hit me yet...it doesnt seem real...
i havent been posting much lately partly because i have been too devastated about what has happened. too many people died and many more have been affected by this tragedy. my english teacher brought a picture that she had of the new york skyline...taken from the empire state building. it is so tragic to think that those two towering buildings are gone and was the target of actions driven by hate. I pray to GOD to bless our country because we are the victims of hate. my cousin, a junior in high school who lives 20 minutes away from the WTC, is so devastated by this. she told me that it is a crazy world out there. it is SO sad that that is true.
to everyone who has lost someone...you have my prayers and condolences. just remember to let GOD open the eyes of your heart so you can see GOD and GOD's undying love for you. bless your heart and may GOD watch over you in your time of need. GOD bless you!
