"The Sounds That Still Echo From 9/11"

(article from the Wall Street Journal website)

Here's the link to the full article about the phone calls and messages left by the victims of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and passengers in the doomed airliners:

Below is an excerpt:

'This reminded me of that moment when Todd Beamer of United 93 wound up praying on the phone with a woman he'd never met before, a Verizon Airfone supervisor named Lisa Jefferson. She said later that his tone was calm. It seemed as if they were "old friends," she later wrote. They said the Lord's Prayer together. Then he said "Let's roll."'


This is not a particularly christian article but it does make a good point. I remember Hal Lindsey (the prophecy expert who wrote the book "The Late Great Planet Earth") saying that we should be able to give out the gospel in less than two minutes (takes me on average about two hours but at least they stayed to listen). I guess when eternity is beckoning we just need to keep to the important stuff. Which really is all the time when you stop to think about it.
