Sept 11th Email Chain


I have told my story before, here it is.

You know how you get those emails forwarded to you. I got this one today. God, Allah..whoever you believe it. I’m sure that he was with us all. We need to remember that as we recall our stories.


You say you will never forget where you were
when you 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 , 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… take 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.

  1. I have read this many times before actually, and everytime it brings tears to my eyes. A day that will never be forgotten. It’s crazy it’s been seven years already…

  2. I have never seen this one before, and I’m glad. I had the luxury of reading it just now at home, and pretty much lost my shit. I also just posted about where I was when I heard the news. I don’t think any of us will ever forget. Take care, sweetie. Thanks for regularly commenting on my site when I am such a lurker on yours.
