Eleven years ago today, I was living in Paris when CNN interrupted my library computer screen to live-cast two planes hitting the Twin Towers. It was like a bad prank gone horribly wrong. Drenched in fright and longing, a fog led me home. Americans were advised to avoid public places, including the metro and all I wanted was the voice of my family. Calls wouldn’t go through though, and the two times I did reach an operator, my ability to speak was frozen in tears.

God, what are you doing?  And why are you doing this?  How is this moving any of us anywhere beneficial?

Reflecting on the complexity of these painful hours this morning, and how they continue to affect our country. And continuing to learn what it means to trust God and to pray for my enemies.

Where were you when 9/11 hit and how did it affect you?
