Ten years ago today was a Tuesday. A minister friend and I were doing our regular Tuesday one-hour Bible study when a congregant knocked on the office door. "You need to get to a TV," she told us. "Something big is happening."
We prayed, as we always did, and then went to a TV, and, like the rest of the nation, we watched.
The next day the civic club I was part of in our small town put up the U.S. flags. On July 4 and other special days we put U.S. flags in front of every business. That day, all we knew to do was to put up the flags.
