    I got this as an e-mail and thought you all would appreciate it. There was not a link to post so I just copied and pasted the text, but the original e-mail had background music and a narrator.

    I WAS THERE...

    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 to 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 all 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.

    God
