Do you ever look back in time and remember what you were doing then? Where were you and what were you doing Friday November 22, 1963? That was an important date in History. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. He was fatally shot while traveling with his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally and Connally’’s wife Nellie, in a Presidential Motorcade. At that time I was in The United States Air Force, on a Strategic Air Force Train. The train was in Gold, Pennsylvania. I remember the shock. Everyone was very quiet. You could hear a pin drop. No one could believe it. We thought that it was getting to be awful in the United States of America. That was in 1963. Things have really changed. Where were you and what were you doing September 11, 2001? The 9/11 attacks were a series of four attacks upon the United States in New York City and the Washington, D.C. area. People had different reactions. Some were crying. Some were mad. Others were in shock. I was at work at my desk. I remember people talking about an attack on America. I thought it was an accident. When you think back in time we realize God has a purpose in all things. At the time we can not believe what is happening. We don’t understand. We will never understand God’s reasons. The secret things belong to God. Deuteronomy 29:29 says – The secret things belong to The Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law. God has set a time and place for everything. As Christians we must trust God’s purposes, even when we don’t understand. He knows best.
