Today is the eighth anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks on the United States. We need to remember what happened on that day and the resolve that we all had following those terrible events.

I find that one thing that we as humans have is an ability to blot out painful experiences. We definitely need to move on from such events, but we should never forget.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. What a wonderful way of putting it. We learn from history. On a day that we mourn for those innocent lives taken in New York City, Washington DC and Shanksville, PA, we also look forward.

We look forward to the Glorious Appearing of our coming Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The day that all pain and suffering will be taken away forever. At the same time, judgement will be handed out to those who rejected His love and willfully brought pain upon others.

Do we look forward to the judgement seat? No. But we know that God is fair and just and whatever He decides will be right and good.

On this day, September 11th, we should reflect and be ever vigilant. Never Forget!
