9-11: And It's Effects on All Ordinary U.S. Citizens
There were passangers on those airplanes who were mothers, and fathers, and business owners, and vacationers who were taking just another ordinary flight. Then the unexpected happened. There were New York business people, and visitors to the city, and emergency responders who would pay the ultimate sacrifice of their life for the act of war on the United States. The is burned forever in the minds of the American people. One of my foster sons was in Baton Rouge at the time and I rushed into his room and woke him and cried "We Are at War!" He said he will never forget the horrow on my face. Stop and remember. Where were you during 9-11? Did it change your perspective and life?
We have seen movies and film clips of the explosions and crumbling skyscrapers and the dust and smoke darkness it created and for those trapped in the twin towers at ground zero. One person, an American Airline Captain Steve Scheibner, had his life changed forever...not because he lost something, but because he should have been the captain on that flight 11 from Boston To Los Angeles that fateful morning:
Steve Scheibner was so changed by this experience that he wrote a book In My Seat. And 11 years later he shares he will never be the same again. Here in Baton Rouge we have an opportunity to hear his incredible story in person this weekend. He will be speaking at Istrouma church at Airline and I-12 at 9:15am and again at 10:45am. Steve will share in person how his life changed forever that day and how he never wants to forget.
