7 Years Later

Seven years ago today, our Country became close and personal to evil. On September 11, 2001, Americans saw evil in a way we had never experienced before. We witnessed with our own eyes as 2,996 people were murdered by Terrorists.

72 of those victims were peace officers, 331 were firefighters and 44 were paramedics. The loss to our first responder community was devastating and the work done that day was nothing short of heroic. It is estimated that over 25,000 lives were saved by the first responders who helped evacuate civilians.

Those that responded on September 11, 2001 and continue to respond today are as true as a Hero as we will ever see. We should take the time today and every day to pray for all of our first responders. They are facing challenging times and the event of 9-11 should be a reminder to all of us that tommorrow is not guaranteed. Eternity is waiting all of us and the largest Hero of our time, Jesus Christ, is waiting to accept us into His Kingdom. Are you prepared? Click Here to find out.
