911 AngelThe brief change in America following the
tragedy of 9/11/01 was profound. Suddenly, people were
realizing the inappropriateness of the violence and sexuality
in movies and on TV. Comedians who had previously made fun of
people were now edifying them. The curbing of excessive
celebration of entertainment as shown by the re-scheduling of
the Emmy awards was refreshing. People were openly praying for
our country and for one another. The American flag was being
I wanted to do a painting to
commemorate all this. I knew I wanted to write on it the
scripture that said: "For he shall give his angels charge over
thee". So I created an angel dressed in red, white, and blue
and holding the world. But I had momentarily forgotten exactly
where the verse was located in the Bible. I looked it up and
discovered it was part of one of my favorite psalms, not
mentally registering its number at the time. I was very
tempted to incorporate the verses surrounding it but somehow I
limited myself to just the original scripture I had in
people who know me, know that I’m the type of
person who looks in the mirror and puts one more accessory on,
while most people look in the mirror and take one thing off,
so not elaborating with more verses was surprising---I got
chills when I realized that the scripture I had been led not
to add any verses to was Psalm 91.11. Truly this artwork must
have been supernaturally inspired.
Hi my friends,
If I put in all the articles I wanted
to share with you in this 911 issue of my newsletter it would
be as thick as your Sunday newspaper. Since I didn't want to
clog up your entire inbox ( after all you may be getting other
very important e-mails today) :-), I created links for you to
go to. Now I know many of you are leery to click on these
links, but my editor assures me that they are all very, very
safe and from my experience I vouch for that.....and that's
the truth!!!! Therefore, I'm asking you all, please take the
time to go to and read this weeks articles,,there are many up
lifting stories I don't want you to miss! so just do it ***
click it ! It's a safe thing to do!
On September 11, please wear red, white and
blue to work or school to show your support for those who lost
their lives on 9~11~01 and to honor the heroes who worked to
save them and the families left behind.
At noon your
time on September 11, 2006, no matter where you are or what
you are doing, stop, put your hand on your heart, and say the
Pledge of Allegiance out loud or to yourself and say a prayer
for our nation.
In addition, for those of us who drive
to work, please drive with your headlights on and put those
car flags back on the roof to also give honor and remembrance
to those who perished on September 11th.
If all of us
do this together in every time zone round the world, we will
have a powerful chain of thoughts surrounding us.
BLESS AMERICA !

The Kindness of Strangers:
on Earth at an Air Force Base
by Charles Strohmer
Four hours out of London, flying uneventfully through
fluorescent blue sky six miles above the Atlantic, the
passengers aboard Delta Flight 59 were digesting their meals,
quietly absorbed in laptops, reading novels, or drowsily
captive to that vespertine atmosphere created on planes when
the movies are running. Other than departing Gatwick 45
minutes late, so far the only bother could now be heard in
hushed buzz of passengers asking air hostesses why all the
video screens had suddenly gone blank. The movies should be
back on in a few minutes, came the reply over the intercom. It
happens. A computer needs re-booting. (A mere fib, it turned
Passengers stretched, ordered drinks, queued for
toilets. Some broke the spell of counterfeit evening by
sliding up their porthole shades. Outside, the blinding powder
blue evanescence went on forever. Pilots call the phenomenon
"severe clear." It hurts your eyes to stare at it too long.
Twenty minutes passed. People fidgeted. Five hours to go
before 3.40pm touchdown in Atlanta . The Boeing 777 droned
Suddenly everyone's attention focused on the Texas
drawl coming from the intercom. "Ladies and gentlemen, this is
your captain speaking. May I have your attention. Your serious
attention." The dreaded words. Within a millisecond, worst
nightmares sprung from the fuselage, the overhead compartment,
the unconscious—wherever those boarding the plane had stowed
them.A kind of holy moment spread through cabin. We're going
down. No one spoke. No one dared.
