Remembering 9/11

With the 20th anniversary of 9/11 is just about upon us, there were a couple of documentaries released on BBC (UK). One was 'Inside The President's War Room', focusing on the government response to the day. For the BBC they were pretty good documentaries. The President's War Room gave a really good overview of the sense of shock on the day, as those in leadership struggled to come to terms with what was happening on what had been an ordinary day. It also showed just how unprepared we were for such an event. It was almost entirely made up of interviews with those recalling what happened with very little narration. I thought that the people who were interviewed, including President Bush came across very well. And, it clearly showed why Afghanistan was invaded - they were harbouring the terrorists who carried this out. The US had to stand up to them and deal with them, it was a war. I thought that was quite important with the events of the other week having many saying we should never have done so in the first place.

The other documentary was Survivors stories from people who were in the Twin Towers, Pentagon and the emergency services that responded. An interview with a New York firefighter who miraculously survived being nearby the collapse of the other tower. I suspect he may be a believer, and pray that he will be in Heaven, he is a hero.

It just reminded of what happened on that day when we watched horrific evil live on our televisions. All the people killed, and all those people who survived but who I suspect will never get over what happened this side of eternity. Praying for all those affected by that day :pray

The other thing that I pondered on was similarities with the rapture. Not for a moment that I suggest the rapture is bad, the rapture is good and from God, 9/11 was satanic inspired evil. But what struck me was that 9/11 was sudden. No one expected something that had never before taken place, and it affected most of us alive on earth to a lesser or greater extent as we all saw it unfolding. And it changed our world. I think the rapture will be very similar. It is going to be huge, everyone on earth will know about it and it will change the world. I think we often underestimate just what an impact that something of that magnitude, that has never happened before will cause. The world won't care that Christians are gone (if that is what they are told, I wouldn't be surprised if a satanic lie is that it was anyone, and could happen again at any time to anyone to induce fear). But people going missing, and all the accidents that will no doubt occur as drivers, pilots, machine operatives suddenly disappear will cause fear and panic. I think it will be a trigger for economic collapse, fear, and global panic. :pray

Yes, this is what IMO will lead to the forming of the OWG. Hundreds of millions, and well over a billion plus gone in a flash if you include children being raptured.

Crazy globalist far left individuals are wanting to form a OWG now, but the entire world is nowhere close to being on board for such a radical change. The rapture will instantly make the majority of the world unstable, and there then will be a need for global leadership. We know there is a dark one waiting to take the reigns, and the grief stricken world will gladly allow him to succeed - for a time.

I pray for peace on this day of remembrance; that God Almighty derail all attempts to create terror on this day; that any and all plans of terrorists for this day come to naught or, better, turn upon themselves; that those who lost loved ones on --or as a result of-- that evil day 20 years ago would be comforted in their thoughts; and that those who are still suffering effects from that day would find peace in faith in Jesus Christ.

I watched a couple of documentaries, but otherwise I’m surprised there aren’t more. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years! But that’s 20 years closer to eternity. :bouncies
Yeah there were some beauties, it's very hard to watch the account of the survivors, the biggest miracle of that was the guy who survived falling through 18 falls, my goodness son thank GOD every day yo your dying breath that you survived such an event

That was Pasquale Buzzelli. He only had minor injuries physically, but at least 2-3 years after was still suffering from PTSD (according to an article written at that time). Another amazing story is the group of men escorting a lady down the stairs. She gave up and told them to go on without her, which they refused to so. About then the tower fell, and every one of them survived because of the location they’d stopped at. So many lives hinged on seemingly mundane details. One man survived because after reaching the top floor of WTC1 he had to go back to his car to retrieve something. That’s when the plane hit. Another man happened to be in the lobby because one of his clients had arrived without I.D., so he was down there vouching for them. Same here, the plane hit as they were talking to the security guard. There are so many stories of people helping others but dying in the process. Sorry, I could go on and on. :)

My aunt, who at one point lived in New Jersey, worked for an Italian wine company. Her 95 year old boss was having breakfast at "Windows on the World" which was at the top of tower two. He heard the plane hit tower one and at 95 years old ran down the stairs to safety. Guess a little wine will do you good! Unfortunately so many people were asked to stay in the building.

One thing about this is it's a reminder that those of us in God's kingdom have no reason to fear death. We have an instinctive fear of it, but we also have faith that removes the reason for it. That's not a reason to be careless with our lives, but it does make life a lot easier, especially in the face of this kind of threat.

I remember reading something years ago that said one of the pilots had been part of a group that had tried to get permission for pilots to carry a gun. Whether or not that's true, if all pilots had that permission, and had exercised their right to be armed, the 9/11 attacks would have been just a back page news story about some wannabe terrorists who thought they could hijack American planes with box cutters.

Pilots can carry guns now. And I'd say that has a lot more to do with these hijackings not happening since the big one than the so-called security you have to go through. Just think about it: does a box cutter really make a person that much more dangerous than say a big strong man, or a karate expert, or a group of such men?

This aspect of the crime is so rarely mentioned that it has been essentially covered up. But to those who know the truth it remains a reminder that disarming the good guys can have a heavy cost.
