Sept 11, 2001 - Never Forget

I cried on Sept.11, 2001 and i still cry every Sept 11th since then.... but i was also asked this question by many, and for a long time i didn't have an answer...earlier this year, i found this post on a website by some man named robert wells, and when i read it, i cried again.... i'm posting it throughout this site, in the hope that it will comfort others on this sad day....9-11-2001 ...I will never forget...:(   Where was God on Sept. 11thI have a very dear friend who questioned my faith in God on the day the terrorists attacked America. Her question was simply put, "Where was God today?" She was very hurt, as all Americans were. And at the time, all I could do was react in bewilderment. But since that moment, I have prayed and grieved over those disastrous events. Prayed and grieved like the entire county and most of the world has. And thankfully after much prayer, I believe that God has enabled me to become aware of the answer to that question.Because now I know where my God was on the morning of September 11, 2001.  He was very, very busy on that horrible morning. First of all, he was putting up obstacles in order to discourage a great many people from taking those deadly flights. Because those four flights together would have held over 1000 passengers; but yet there was only 266 aboard. Imagine for a moment had you been one of the many people who wanted to take one of those doomed flights, but for one reason or another were not on board.  As the morning progressed our awesome God was on those 4 commercial flights giving terrified passengers the ability to stay calm. Not one of the family members who was called by a loved one on any of the high-jacked planes, said that any passengers were screaming or were out of control. God was busy giving those passengers the strength to endure those terrible last minutes. Almighty God was busy instilling into each and every one of those passengers the knowledge that he was waiting for them. That soon, they were to be in his waiting arms, and that they were not to worry. He was also busy trying to create obstacles for the employees at the World Trade Center. Only around 20,000 were in the towers when the first jet hit. Since the buildings hold over 50,000 workers, this was a miracle from God himself. Think of the many people who were employed at the WTC who told the media that they were late for work because of one reason or another like traffic delays, or that they had to take their children to school and were running late. Think of all the thousands of people who made it safely down floor after floor after floor. Think of the tens of thousands of visitors that daily enter those buildings not only to visit, but also to conduct business, to shop, or to just commute. God showing his extraordinary love kept most of them away or delayed them just enough on that fateful morning. Our God was also busy holding up two 110-story buildings, so that just about all the workers could get out. The two planes came in from different directions. One from the north and one from the south. This is thought to have been done so that one of the buildings would topple over and knock the other building down. God prevented that from happening and thus prevented many surrounding buildings and their inhabitants from being crushed under the weight of the falling towers. Only an act of God could have prevented the tops of those towers from being ripped off when the jets impacted, and only God could have prevented the debris from being hurled down on to the adjoining buildings, and down on top of the pedestrians in the streets below. God was also very busy with one other thing on that day in September. He was extremely busy feeling the hurt and the pain that each and every one of those people that were involved in that horrible and evil tragedy was feeling. God was living all the horror, feeling all the pain, experiencing all the terror that each person was experiencing. As they hurt, God hurt. Their fear and discomfort was God's fear and discomfort. Think of it. The Creator of the universe was experiencing, at the exact same time, all the pain and suffering that each person was feeling. I know beyond a doubt that God felt all this pain and suffering,
