We spent a day in a shelter for homeless families. Above is Kyle speaking to the kids after we had done some drama & songs for them. And below is Zach wowing the kids with some awesome magic card tricks. They loved it all! I spent quite a bit of time talking with a woman & her two beautiful daughters who had just moved into this shelter. She was a career woman who told me about being down town shopping that day and had inhaled so much dust & debris when the towers fell that she could no longer work due to health issues with her lungs. She cried as she talked about it & this was like 7 years after it had happened.
I still pray for those people I met in New York City. And others who've lost loved ones. We all lost something that terrible day. Our Innocence for one thing. And on this, the 9th anniversary, my kids have asked if we can watch the movies The World Trade Center & United 93. Yes, it is with heavy hearts, we remember.
