I've seen the signs and announcements all over town and the web. I've read the blog posts and seen all the remembrances of 9-11-01:
We will not forget.
And, yet - as David and I were talking this morning and trying to explain this to our girls - I realize that our nation has forgotten. Of course, we remember 9-11 and the attacks on America. Of course, we remember the tragedy. Of course, we won't forget that or where we were when we found out about the tragedies in our nation.
But do you remember what came after that? Singing God Bless America? Flags in every window? Softer hearts towards our neighbors? Joining together? Turning towards God?
That attitude has not lasted in our country and honestly, it seems that America has forgotten. As a nation, we have forgotten God. We have forgotten our dependence on Him. We have forgotten to turn to Him as a nation.
While we remember 9-11-01, let us pray for the revival of America and her hearts being turned back to God.
Our church planned a great service today reminding us of our need for God, reminding us that God was there on 9-11 just as He is still with us today, with great songs celebrating our freedom.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord...
