Most of us can remember where we were on September 11, 2001. In my mind, I can still see the images of buildings burning and eventually collapsing. I can also remember vividly the video images filmed from a helicopter hovering over the crash site in Pennsylvania as well as the Pentagon. I remember gathering at our church that evening to pray for survivors and the search and rescue teams. I remember the pain in my own heart as I thought about the anguish so many families were feeling at losing a loved one in such horrible fashion. Without a doubt, it is a day that I will certainly remember for the rest of my life.
This week I received an email from a dear friend entitled “In My Seat.” He told me that it wasn’t your normal 9/11 heart tugging story, but it was a wonderful testimony of a man who was scheduled to fly American Airlines flight 11. The video is just over 15 minutes long, but it is well worth your time to listen to the 9/11 story of Steve Scheibner.
