It is good to remember history and different generations go through different galvanizing, emotional shared experiences. We were created as emotional beings. Despite the laws, regulations, and changes that try to instill peace and trust in people, it will never satisfy. We are warned in Psalm146 to “not put our trust in princes and in a son of man in whom there is no salvation”. We have to remember to trust God where our ultimate security, trust, peace and healing comes. A God who knows suffering and is acquainted with grief. We can run to Him with our sorrows and give us hope.
9-11 was awful. People lost love ones. 2,900 people died in the days surrounding the event. More have lost love ones in war. We should love our country. We should be thankful and grateful for our our freedom. But it should not surpass our Love, Trust, and Hope in the Lord. Our eternal source.
