"MEET ME IN THE
You say you will never forget where
you were when you heard the news
On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.
I was on the 110th floor in a smoke
filled room with a man who called his
wife to say "Good-Bye." I held
his fingers steady as he dialed. I
gave him the peace to say,
"Honey, I am not going to make

Some couldn't hear Me calling to them
through the smoke and flames; "Come to Me...
take my hand." Some chose, for the final time,
to ignore Me. But, I was there.
I did not place you in the Tower that
