This weekend I recommend everyone to visit the United Flight 93 memorial that is near Indian Lake. It is only about an hour away from Altoona. Coming Saturday, will be the 20th year anniversary of the Sept 11th Attack.
I will not say much about this, but have prepared a worship service and message regarding this event on Sunday, Sept. 12th. Visit that site. The site that 40 passengers gave their life to prevent an attack on our nations Capitol Building. 37 US citizens, 1 German, 1 Kiwi, and 1 Japanese sacrificed their life after hearing those other attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. These passengers prevented and stopped the terrorist’s plan.
Pray for the victims of the crash and pray that their families found peace. Honor Flight 93, and look at each name. Never forget wheat these people represent. That is the tough decision of survival. This may have been their only option for survival. So if you find yourself with your backs against the wall, never give up.
I wished the outcome could have been different for Flight 93. They had to make a tough decision. Their efforts will not be forgotten. But their heroism, sacrifice, and altruistic decision will be a learning lesson for my life and something I can pass on to my children. Act collectively, show unity, and never think that you have no options in this world. Regardless of the outcome, live your life well to the very end.
Hey this is Rev. Brian Choi's random thought throughout my week. Most of this stuff, will probably be about family, church, fishing, music, movies, food, whatever I think of, hopefully it will have some sort of theological reflection (maybe).
