Thoughts from a Tenth Anniversary

The world changed ten years ago.

My brain consumed a barrage of media reflections on Sunday.  Viewing footage and photos and interview after interview of people who escaped or lost loved ones that day.  It felt to me as though it just happened yesterday.  This horrible thing that one just can't wrap their mind around. 

It was a turning point in thousands of lives.

For me, personally, I watched the footage ten years ago wondering how people could unleash such hatred on fellow human beings.  While I'm sure others sat watching, wondering how a merciful God could let this horrible thing happen.

And so I wonder... For how many people was that day a turning point in their faith?  And was my husband among them?
