Where Was God?

Written in regards to September 11th, in dedication to all touched by it

***

People ask God where he was on September 11; some people are angry because they assume God let all those people suffer as they did.

But I know where God was—he was answering the prayers of the victims' families; he was holding the hands of the fallen heroes; he was helping people cope with their grief and sorrow; he was releasing people from their broken bodies; he was ending peoples' suffering; he gave people the courage and strength to survive, and he was there to wipe our tears away.

September 11 was a dark day for us all, and God was hurt most of all. He lost thousands of his precious children, he lost thousands of lives that can never be replaced or restored.

Where was God on September 11? Crying with us.

The End
