Almost 3,000 people died on that day. A day that will never be forgotten. So many innocent lives were lost. Our entire nation was affected. The terrorists wanted to bring fear and trembling to our nation, but we turned our fear into a resolve to never let this happen again.
Some ask why God would allow such a tragedy to happen. The answer is that He loves us. He gave us free-will, so that we could choose to love Him. Along with free-will, comes the consequences for our action or inaction. Our actions affect others, so it may not be our free-will that leads to such a tragedy, but it could be someone else’s. What good is free-will if there are no consequences?
9/11 is tragic because of the loss of so many lives, both the innocent and those who rejected salvation through Jesus. It makes me wonder about the number of abortions in a day. More lives are lost each day (yes, each day) on average in abortion than were lost with the 9/11 attacks. Somewhere between 3,300 and 3,700 abortions happen every day on average. And that is just the US! Worldwide, the number is over 100,000. These are innocent lives without a voice of their own. Let us be a voice for the voiceless.
