  "MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL" 

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 "Good-bye."
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 in 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 on all four of those planes,
 in every seat, with every prayer.
I was with the crew as they were overtaken.
 I was in every heart 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.
 
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.
