What I was doing on 9/11/01

I was substituting at Lonoke High School. The teacher was doing something at the school but could not be in the classroom. She had planned on the students watching a video. As classes changed from 1st period to 2nd period some male students came in talking about what had just happened in NY. Now High School students when they have subs try and pull the wool over the subs eyes and try to get the sub to change the lesson plans so they can goof off or have a free day. So when these boys came in talking that was what I thought they were trying to do. Shortly after that the teacher came in and confirmed what the boys were saying and turned the TV to the news and I watched the news all day on 9/11 and talked with students about it all day.

One thing that I thought was amazing was that during the day the projections of how many were dead was 20,000 or more and that when the final death count came out the dead numbered so few compared to the number originally thought. So many people changed their normal routine that day and were thus still alive. My hearts go out to those who lost their lives, but we also remember God was there that day and saved so many more from death.
