9-11-2011 America Will Never Forget

Categories: Campaign Blog Archive from 2012 run for Congress


For if we live, we live for the LORD, and if we die, we die for the LORD; so then, whether we live or die, we are the LORD’s.

Romans 14:8


I walked amongst the charredness of a sight so grim. Even three weeks or so after a piece of American history came burning down, I found myself in a complete confusion of why? A stillness of death permeated my being. The souls of humanity crying out in disbelief and constant agony. My body tingled and my soul ached sensing the presence of angels lifting soul after soul to their Eternal Rest. A cool October morning shadowed in fear. Fear of the unknown as America and the world learned to live post- 9-11-2001.


My visit was short yet centered around the tragedy. Even ten years later there is confusion and pain. It seems so long ago but yet so near. A day of confusion. A day of pain. Maybe family were lost. Maybe friends. Maybe a friend of a friend of a friend. Maybe no one but fellow Americans. But all Americans young and old felt a call of duty that day. We pulled together in Spirit and rage. American Flags flew everywhere; businesses, homes and cars. Big flags flying from the rear of pickups whipping in the wind of Patriotism. Old Glory where ever you turned. You could almost see God on the lips of everyone- yes, even the disbelievers asking why LORD, why.


People called out to God asking for guidance- asking for peace. In brevity every day I write of His love and forgiveness penning poems of His Word in Spirit-led psalm of praises and surrender to share the conversion of heart God instilled in my soul a short seven years ago. To offer some of God’s guidance in the madness of the unknown helping people turn to His help. I purposely want to reach out to the people who are expecting miracles while living a life led in self. To promote conversion in receiving the gift of God’s grace.


Our job as Christians is to instill His Son’s forgiveness in their hearts to weather the days of turmoil for as long as they may come. Any day of pain. God will expunge the fear from you. All you have to do is say yes to forgiveness and repent from your selfish pleasures of lust and sin. Say yes to His love and feel His forgiveness. We all know it’s hard to forgive, especially something as tragic as terror filled unknown death, the exact reason why we must all be prepared to accept life’s circumstances before His day of judgment comes upon us all. God has asked us to forgive our killers. He knows we’ll never forget.


So we ask in prayer: Dear God we pray today and every day we feel true forgiveness living in a state of Your grace. We pray today for continued healing for the senseless acts of terror that occurred 10 years ago today. We pray for my Kairos Prison Ministry Team. We pray for my daughter Alexandra’s peace and healing. We pray LORD to always be prepared in our hearts to be judged by You. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.


God Bless His Truth for America,

To Guide This Great Land- 9-11 ten years later


The memories linger

Charred memories of hate

Void of God?

Trying to relate


A day of disgust

Fires raging alone

Souls jumping

Prayers to the bone


Mouths open

Minds in fear

TV’s flickering

Scenes so dear


Three building burning

Four planes in all

Home of the military

Trade Towers so tall


We know some fought back

Protection of USA’s right

To live in freedom

To pay the cost in spite


Of death’s certain hero

No choice but to go

Down with the ship

The White House to forgo


Freedom will always ring

United we stand

Praying for Truth

To Guide This Great Land
