Pray for innocent victims of 9/11 attack

Editor, the Advocate:
The date of Sept. 11 will be remembered by millions of Americans as the date in 2001 that foreign terrorists used highjacked airliners to crash into buildings in New York and Washington, D.C., killing many innocent people. It ranks as a date of infamy, alongside the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by the Japanese.
The date will also be remembered by thousands in the Crossroads as the day in 1961 when Hurricane Carla came ashore near Port O'Connor, totally devastating the area.
Carla continued moving inland, leaving death and destruction in its wake, finally dissipating as it neared Michigan.
As you pray for the victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks, please add another prayer for the victims of nature's 1961 attack.
