September 11, 2001 is forever cemented in the minds of Americans. Anyone who is old enough to recall the tragic events of that day will never forget what he or she was doing when they first heard that our nation was under attack. In fact, we don’t want to forget; we want to remember.
Our town had a memorial service this morning at 9:11am. We had patriotic music and speeches and a 21-gun salute. We also prayed and released balloons into the air. Like many others across the nation, we wanted to remember what happened on that fateful day when so many innocent people died.
We also want to recall the time when an innocent person named Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins. Jesus gave us a beautiful memorial service to help us remember him. Every time we take communion it ensures that we will not forget what happened that day when Jesus laid down his life on the cross so that we could be saved.
“…Do this in remembrance of me.”—Luke 22:19.
