Planting pansies



The morning of 9-11-2001 I was planting pansies in the front yard of our powder Springs home when I heard about the attacks.  I'm not a gardener or anything, we just wanted to dress up our front yard a littel bit. My wife arrived home after dropping our son at the church pre-school.

"A plane just hit one of the World Trade Center Buildings"

I figured it was just some cook in a Cessna or something - maybe he lost control or it was grandiose suicide.  So I continued planting until it was time to get ready for work.  I was still selling cars and was scheduled to work starting at 11 am.  When I went inside and turned on the TV I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I remember yelling to her "They were big planes ... They've hit more buildings.... OMG this is a war!"

The church and pre school were on my way to work so I stopped by and say "hi" to my son and stopped by the sanctuary to pray.  I prayed for all the victims.  I also prayed that God would touch and lighten the hearts of those who could perpetrate something so terrible.

9-11-01 may we all never forget
