I just can’t do it.
Over the next two weeks I expect there to be a lot of news reports, specials, and documentaries for the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attack. I just don’t think I can watch them. The events of that day are still to real and raw to me. I remember exactly what I was doing when I saw the second plan fly into that building. I can tell you everything I did that day. For me, remembering that day is just as horrible as living through that day. Each year, around 9/11, I try to watch something about it, but I just can’t.
I thought this year might be different.
But last night I watched most of National Geographic’s interview with Pres. Bush, and I just don’t think I can watch any more reports. Don’t get me wrong. I want to watch them, and I will never forget; it’s simply to painful. To make matters worse, I am starting a series of messages on Job on Sunday, September 11th, and I plan on using the attacks as an illustration. But I don’t want to.
What about you? What are your thoughts and feelings as we creep toward the 10th anniversary of 9/11?
