9/11 remembered

It was one of those moments when everyone the world over will be able to tell you where they were and what they were doing when the planes hit the twin towers.

An awful act of titanic proportions to the entire civilized world.

Hundreds of innocent men women and children and thousands of lives destroyed in grief.

It is difficult to know what the people behind these acts of destruction hope to achieve.

Here in my island we have had 40 years of bombs and bullets. Hundreds of people killed until everyone had enough and the killings had to stop.

Thank God it did end.

Much of the credit would have to go to a few people. Moe Mowlem, George Mitchel Bill Clinton and John Hume who got together and banged heads until the main people started to see sense.

It is hard to see where all this leads to and from. For example many of the guns and explosives which were used came from Gadaffi in Lybia, they were paid for in part by money raised in America by well meaning ex pats. The same bombs killed women and children of all religions and political beliefs.

Peace is a very delicate flower and it will take a lot of nurturing for it to get strong and take hold.

So as wars continue in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan,Palestine etc we must start to find peace in other ways rather than through war.

May all your Gods bless you and give you wisdom

  1. Thank you for posting that. As most people probably do, I remember where I was when the news hit ... and I also posted about it on my blog (http://blindedbyinsight.blogspot.com) though a bit of a different take, about a remembrance sermon I heard called "Where were you when the world stopped turning? or where will you be when it does?" A few years ago, I heard a man speak who was in one of those towers - the man is totally blind, and his guide dog literally guided the man and several others all the way down. Thanks again, John.
