Today, I'm sharing something with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).
It's an article posted by westernjournalism.com that I hope you will take time to read.
The article is entitled, Emotional Mike Pence Reveals Why Flight 93 Passengers' Heroism Is Personal For Him: https://www.westernjournalism.com/emotional-mike-pence-reveals-why-flight-93-passengers-heroism-is-personal-for-him/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=PostSideSharingButtons&utm_content=2017-09-12&utm_campaign=websitesharingbuttons.
Hopefully, you read the whole article.
In case you didn't, I am sharing some of what was stated:
After learning about the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and on the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, passengers of Flight 93 banded together within minutes and devised a plan to charge the cockpit, likely using the plane’s food cart try to ram into the plane’s cockpit, where the knife-wielding hijackers had barricaded themselves.
“They not only planned, but history records that they prayed,” Pence said. “Together with Lisa Jefferson, a phone operator on the ground below, we’re told they prayed the Lord’s Prayer, and recited those ancient words (from Psalm 23), ‘Though I walk through valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.’”
Only 29 minutes after the terrorists took over the plane, passenger “Todd Beamer spoke those words that America and the world we never forget, ‘Let’s roll,’” Pence said.
After six minutes of struggle, Flight 93 plummeted to the earth into a farm field outside of Shanksville.
Echoing former President Abraham Lincoln’s famous words at Gettysburg, Pence said, “We cannot hallow this place beyond what the heroes of Flight 93 have already done.”
I also like what Mike Pence said at the end of the article:
“As long as America endures, we will tell their story, and generations of Americans will ever be inspired by the faithful and courageous words and deeds of the heroes of Flight 93,” he said. “May God bless our beloved fallen. May God bless and comfort the families gathered here and all those who suffered loss on this day 16 years ago. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.”
Hopefully, you watched the YouTube video on the article, entitled: Mike Pence Delivers Moving Speech In Shanksville, PA. Flight 93.
Yes, if you hadn't watched it, please... watch it, by clicking on this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=890&v=YPdZ0p_nlmk.
If you watched the video, you'll know that Mike Pence spoke about what was said in the Bible, even though he didn't quote where the verse was located, and didn't use exactly all that I am quoting, here on today's LwL entry.
I'm referring to John 15:12-13, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Hopefully, you realize that Jesus loved us, and laid down His life for those of us who trust in/believe upon Him, our Lord, Jesus Christ. By doing this, He paid the price for our sin.
However, Mike Pence let everyone know that on 9/11 in 2001, the 40 passengers on Flight 93 loved others and their country enough to realize that even though their lives were going to end, they could love people, and do what they could to help protect others. Which, they did.
For this, I am also truly thankful.
Thankful to those 40 people.
But, of course, I am extremely thankful for my Lord, Jesus Christ, for what He did for us, to provide us with everlasting life.
Hopefully, you feel the same.
If so, you'll be blessed.
Until next time...
