I was reading the newspaper with my Mommys. We do this everyday because it is important to be informed. On this particular day (Yesterday) there was a stirring story about a Note.
Note, you say? What is so special about a note?
Well this note happened to be written 11 years ago today - from one of the World Trade Center towers. It was from a man who was trapped on the 84t floor of the building along with 12 other persons. He wrote the note and tossed it out of the window hoping it would find its way to someone who could help them. He did not know the building was going to collapse trapping and killing all inside.
Fast forward 11 years later and his note finds its way to his family. On the note were
12 people trapped
Those 5 little words have changed history - not just for the family of the writer - Randy Scott - but for the rest of the United States of America.
For the family, it changed how they thought he died. Sadly, he did not die painlessly nor quickly, as they had hoped.
For the rest of us - it added 1 more NAME to the list of HEROES from that horrible day. Randy Scott had attempted to save 12 people by using the only thing available to himself at that time - THE POWER OF WORDS.
Words can move people - words can move nations.
I wish Randy Scott's words could have saved himself and the 12 persons trapped with him. Since they did not, I want to empower these words to let us never forget what September 11 means to all of us:
The Unity of our NATION and the preservation of our FREEDOM.
