On September 11, 2001 we as Americans from all different cultural had our lives validated and changed forever.

There is an old saying that goes things happens in threes, a lot of times it is bad. Today was no different.

First at the World Trade Center we lost over 2,753 Americans, which included fathers, sons, daughters, mothers, husbands and wives, including 343 firefighters and paramedics, 23 New York Police officers and 37 Port Authorities. We were able to evacuate 10,000-14,000 other Americans. Thank God this didn’t happen when everyone would have arrived at work after 9 a.m.

Than we were attacked at the Pentagon on American Airlines Flight 77 where we lost 59 people on the plane along with 125 military personal on the ground.

Next on United Airlines Flight 93 with 40 people aboard risked their lives in attempt to retake the plane. After they learned of the attacks in New York and Washington. Todd Beamer told the other passengers are you ready? Let’s Roll. This quote will live on forever and shows what America is all about. In response the highjack deliberately crashed the plane into a field in Somerset County Pennsylvania killing all 40 passengers and crew board members.

Every year at the Gold Coast Chronicle which I own, we always come up with a special issue this year is no different, to honor the victims of 9/11.

This year unfortunately we have to add 4 more brave victims of 9/11. They are the victims of the attack in Benghazi on Sept 11, 2012, we lost 4 true heroes they are the US Am. to Libya Christopher Steven along with Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

To this day this crime has not been solved and the victims have not gotten their justice like the other victims of Sept. 11, 2001 have.

I received an email at the Chronicle on Sept. 11, 2010, which was a poem that best expresses what happened on this terrible day that I want to share with you. I wish I had the name of the unknown write, would have liked to give him or her the credit that they deserved.

 

Here it is:

Everyone says that they will never forget where they were when they heard the news on September 11, 2001. Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called
his wife to say ‘Good-Bye.’ I held his fingers steady as he dialed.

I gave him the peace to say, ‘Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is
OK…I am ready to go.’

I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their
children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she
realized he wasn’t coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me
for help. ‘I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!’

I said. ‘Of course I will show you the way home – only believe in me now.’

I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the
injured and devastated souls.

I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and
answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I
was with the crew as they were overtaken.

I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them.

I was in Texas, Virginia, California, Michigan, and Afghanistan.

I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.

Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name – though not
all know Me.

Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.

Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames;
‘Come to Me… This way… takes my hand.’ Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.

But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I
do… However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time would
you have reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you. But someday
your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now
while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are ‘ready to
go.’

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

GOD

 

During the next 60 seconds literally one minute let’s honor the victims of Sept. 11, 2001 and Sept. 11 2012.

By the way we live our lives on a daily bases by honoring our children and parents. And help those that need it.

But we must also demand the victims of Benghazi get their justice, like the victims of Sept. 11, 2001 did. We must bring those criminals that committed this horrible crime to JUSTICE!

We must also stop and think and appreciate God’s power in your life, for doing what
you know is pleasing to Him.

If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the instructions. Jesus said, ‘If you are ashamed of Me, I will be ashamed of you before My Father’

If you are not ashamed, copy and send this message…only if you believe
‘Yes, I love my God.

He is my fountain of Life and My Savior.

He keeps me going day and night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do everything.

Christ is my strength.’

This message needs to be heard and passed around to all your friends.
GOD BLESSES YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!

 

Editor’s Note: The words of this poem was so touching, that I prayed to god. To ask for his guildness on how to find where it came from. While I was on you tube my prayers was answered.

As of today Sept 11, 2012 the video was removed from YouTube so we cannot bring it to you. And that is ashamed, it is so powerful!

We did find this one that I hope you will enjoy!
