The only reason I picked up One TuesdayMorning is because it was a new book writtenby one of my favorite authors' KarenKingsbury. I really was not interested inreading a book about the terrorist attacks on 9/11. I knew it would beemotional, and it was. It is the story of two men who look amazinglyalike. One is a fireman and the other a driven businessman. One will diein the collapse of the World Trade Center. The other will have amnesia.The story is excellent. I highly recommend the book, but have a box oftissues on hand. And plan to stay up late. It's gripping.
During every generation there may be one or more happenings with whicheveryone can identify. During my lifetime there have been several. I canremember the Viet Nam War. I can remember in high school the feelingthat the end of the world could come any day, when Castro had missilesaimed at the United States. I remember the day J. F. Kennedy wasassassinated. And I remember September 11, when terrorists attacked theUnited States.
It is good to remember. It is not pleasant, but it is good. It's good toremember why we are in a war against terrorism and why we have troops inIraq. I am proud to be an American and very proud of our militarypersonnel. I pray we never forget that the United States was attacked on9/11. I pray that we would be united again the way we were the first fewdays after 9/11 and that we would forget the petty political differencesthat only hinder the war against terrorism.
I highly recommend reading One TuesdayMorning as a reminder of all we holddear...freedom, faith, love of family.
