“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings, I will take refuge.” - Psalm 57:1
This week we remember, twenty years later, the 2,996 people who lost their lives and the 25,000 more who were injured on 9-11, including the First Responders who ran towards what was happening, instead of away. This event continues to loom large in the hearts and lives and ethos of many in the United States, especially those of us living nearer to New York City. There are memorials in many towns, and of course in New York City itself. Yearly memorial gatherings have been held. We have striven to remember the tragedy of that day and those affected.
