Meet me in the stairwell

Remember so that we will never forget…

Source Written by Stacy Randell

You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news on September 11, 2001.

Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say “Goodbye.”

I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, “Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK … I am ready to go.” I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children.

I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn’t coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help. “I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!”

I said. “Of course I will show you the way home – only believe on Me now.” I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.

I was with the Firefighters, the Police Officers, the Emergency Workers. I was there, watching each brave step they took.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer.

I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them. I was in Texas, Kansas, London.

I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name – though not all know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor. Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; “Come to Me…this way…take My hand.” Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day.

You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me?

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end.

And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are “ready to go.”

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

God…

Unions are they For America anymore?

We think that the unions are not really as bad as it appears that they are, we think that perhaps it is a few bad apples that are engaged in this struggle to control everything around them, it is misguided at best and at worst it is traitorous activity, subversive and evil.

But is it really as bad as that?

I do not believe that all unions are this way, and I do not even believe that most unions are this way, it is very possible that some union leaders may need to be given a pink slip and new leadership found that are of the old way, where unions helped provide benefits for its workers, not donated to elected officials in an effort to obtain an unfair advantage.

Still there are some compelling facts that are at issue here and so here is the email I received today un edited in any way.

Source Tea Party Express,
Originally, labor unions served an honorable cause. But after many decades, they have become a political machine that is blind to the true needs of its members. By trading cash for votes and using intimidation tactics against any who refuse to bow to them, unions have grown into an unwieldy beast that exists only to amass more power and money for itself, under the abjectly false claim of representing hardworking public sector employees like teachers and firefighters from whom they extort massive fees and manipulate in return.

This crooked alliance between money and political power is living in the past. The Tea Party and individuals like Gov. Walker are fighting against the old way of doing business. We are fighting for smaller, more effective, more nimble, responsive and accountable government. We are fighting to break the bonds that unions hold over our governments, our states, and individual employees.

While we may have thought the battle is over, unfortunately it has just begun. Even now the old alliance is gathering massive resources to attack, demonize, and ultimately RECALL Gov. Walker and 8 Republican Senators who stood strong with him. If we allow the public to keep believing the blatant lies of the labor unions, they just might succeed.

That is why Tea Party Express has formulated a plan that we will be making more public in the coming days. While we are up against tremendous odds, this is a fight that we will all tell our grandchildren about, and it is the very reason the tea party movement began.

Help us fight back against the mob tactics of the Obama campaign team and organized labor unions – and make the most generous contribution you can afford to the Tea Party Express.
