'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL' 
 You say you will never forget where you were when
        you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I. 
          I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
        with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I
        held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
        peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
        is OK..I am ready to go.' 

        I was with his wife when he called as she fed
        breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
        tried to understand his words and as she realized
        he wasn't coming home that night. 

        I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
        woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been
        knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said.
        'Of course I will show you the way home - only
        believe in Me now.' 

        I was at the base of the building with the Priest
        ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
        I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
        heard my voice and answered.
        I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
        with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
        were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
        believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
        faith has saved them. 

        I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan ,   Afghanistan .
        I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
        Did you sense Me? 

        I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
        every name - though not all knew Me. Some met Me
        for the first time on the 86th floor.
        Some sought Me with their last breath.
        Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the
        smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take
        my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there. 
  I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
        may not know why, but I do. However, if you were
        there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
        reached for Me?
         
       Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
        for you. But someday your journey will end. And I
        will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
        be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
        'ready to go.' 

        I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

Very well put, all the emotions surrounding that day - how can anyone live with the immediate knowledge of it? I'd have lost my mind by now. Still, people go on, they continue their lives and somehow, heal. Thanks for sharing this, dear friend.
