In The Hands of A Child is offering a $1.00 special on their 9/11 lap book. It looks like a neat project!
Our soccer daughter decorated her socks (to wear this month) in tribute to 9/11. We thought they turned out perfectly patriotic!
Unknowing of the events that would occur on 9/11/01, this was the Magnificat meditation (10 years ago) on 9/12/01:
"How easy it is...for us to become dependent on our routines...Friends and possessions surround us...It is the status quo that ...carries us from day to day...we begin to lose sight of the fact that...behind all these things it is God who...sustains us. We go along, taking for granted that tomorrow will be very much like today, comfortable in the world we created for ourselves...and give little thought to God. Somehow, then, God must contrive to break through those routines...and remind us once again...that we are ultimately dependent only upon Him...that his we are and that we must look to Him and turn to Him in everything. Then it is, perhaps, that He must allow our whole world to be turned upside down in order to remind us it is not our permanent abode or final destiny, to bring us to our senses and restore our sense of values, to turn our thoughts once more to Him."~Fr. Walter J. Ciszek~
