Are you wondering when are we going to die?
Of course only God knows.
The fact is, all of us will die one day, just like the millions who have already died.
Perhaps a more intriguing question would be………
How Will I Die? Disease? Accident?
I am sure not one of them had any idea what was going to happen that day when they left their houses.
There are reports of many who were delayed in getting to their jobs that day at the World Trade Center.
Some were annoyed at the delays they had, but when they realized what they had escaped from I am sure they were glad of their delay!
Here are some amazing stories from The Atlantic.com.
“The night before, the New York Giants game in Denver had gone late into the night, which meant that a whole host of New Yorkers showed up slightly late to work that morning, missing the final elevator up to the top of the North or South Tower; others survived because Roger Clemens was supposed to have been pitching for his 20th win at home with the Yankees on September 10.
The game was rained out, but not before people such as Roy Bell, who worked on the 102nd floor of the North Tower, had rescheduled their 8 a.m. client meetings for 8:45 instead. Michael Lomonaco, the chef at Windows on the World, would have normally been at work by 8:30, but he stopped to get new eyeglasses in the shopping concourse under the World Trade Center; he survived, while 72 of his co-workers were killed.”
“Fate cursed as well as saved on 9/11. Jeremy Glick’s flight on September 10 from the Newark airport was delayed, so he switched onto United Airlines Flight 93 the following day; the flight attendant Betty Ong ended up working American Airlines Flight 11 because she wanted to go meet her sister to plan a vacation to Hawaii.”
The FACT is; ALL of us ARE going to Die
We know this, but do not like to think about it.
The important thing is to be ready.
How do I prepare to die?
By preparing to live.
Mainly because we do not know WHEN we will die, it could be this evening!
