Every generation has a life-changing moment. For the greatest generation, it was the bombing of Pearl Harbor. For the baby boomers, it was the assassination of President Kennedy. Today, it is the attack on the Twin Towers. For the rest of our lives, we will remember where we were when we heard the news, as if that moment was frozen in time. We remember little things, the view out the window, a song on the radio, the scent of coffee brewing in the break room, perhaps a conversation that seemed unimportant. These are now affixed for all time to what followed. All of the emotion, all of the uncertainty, all of the fear will be with us whenever hear the words, “Where were you when it happened?”
Twenty years later I am going to remember this day by going The Table Coffee Company for prayer and praise music and to give all of my fear and uncertainly to the Lord.
Where will you be?
