Dallas-Ft. Worth Remembers 9/11

Jim Franklin

History repeats

Boise ID

I was 4 years old on Dec. 7,1941 and well remember my pastor father after returning to our parsonage after Sunday service, turning on the radio to hear of the bombing of Pearl Harbor pacing back and forth across our living room praying for President Roosevelt, the families that had lost loved ones and my 5 older step brothers all of military age. So almost 60 years later I found myself pacing back and forth across my den praying for President Bush, those who had lost loved ones and the brave young people who would volunteer in the military effort to bring justice to the terrorists.
