History of America

The video below is the opening video for Glenn Beck's Restoring Love event this past Saturday night. During the video, Beck talks about September 11, 2001 and how we all remember where we were when we first heard about the attacks.

At the time, I was working as a Network Administrator in the IT department of my church. I had just gotten to work when my roommate called to tell me the World Trade Center had been attacked. I unlocked the Assistant Pastor's office, turned on the television and as the staff arrived, we all watched the news until all of us were there and the Chief of Staff gathered us into our meeting room to pray for our nation. As we were praying, my cell phone vibrated so I left the room to take another call from my roommate who told me the Pentagon had been attacked.

As everyone knows, words can never describe the feelings I, and all Americans, experienced that day. In my lifetime, this was the first time we had ever been attacked on American soil and unfortunately, I do not believe it will be the last time. - Reggie
