Santaland Christmas Story - On the 105th
Anniversary of the New York Sun Editorial, Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, many
of my holiday visitors to Santaland will remember when Christmas was more than electronic games. It was a
holiday when people sat around a black and white television and watched Christmas shows from entertainers like
Bob Hope, and Bing Crosby played Christmas records on the Victrola listened to music on the radio.....

The 9/11 Silent Night
|You say you will never forget where
you were when you heard the news on September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.
I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say, "Good-bye."
I held his fingers steady as he dialed
I gave him the peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK...I am ready to go."
I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children.
I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night.
I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out for Me for help. "I have been knocking on
the door of your heart for 50 years!" I said, "Of course I will show you the way home - only believe
in Me now."
I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home
to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.
I was on four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I
was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them.
I was in Texas, Kansas, London. I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me?
I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know Me. Some met me for the first
time on the 86th floor.
Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; "Come to Me...this way...take My hand."
Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.
I did not place you in the tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive
moment in time, would you have reached for Me?
September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there
for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready to go."
I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
Remember...I love you.
