The Call that Never Came: A Pilot’s Story of 9/11

Image result for never forget 911

I’m departing from the norm today in order to commemorate those who lost their lives 17 years ago in the tragedy of 9/11.  On that day, America faced some of its darkest hours when terrorists flew airplanes into the twin towers of NYC, the Pentagon in Washington DC and a field in Pennsylvania (targeting the White House).  We lost almost 3,000 lives that day.

Today, though, I want to share a heartfelt, uplifting story of an American Airlines pilot who was supposed to fly that day.  The story is poignant, yet so incredibly inspiring.  You must hear this man’s testimony!

Perhaps we should all consider our life’s objectives and determine how committed we are to live them out.  May each of us be challenged by Steve Scheibner’s commitment, and blessed as we commit the same!
