Like you, I remember exactly where I was,

Exactly what I was doing, and

Exactly who said it first.

Fellow citizens fell to their deaths to avoid being burned.

Even so, some ran in to the buildings.

They saved many with their calm heroism.

Some were able to fight back, and they prevented further calamity at the cost of their own lives.

Like you, I will never forget, even though I would like to.

That would make it easier to see, think, and comprehend without the pain of remembering.

But we do remember, and we must.

Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
