A tribute to Lisa Marie Terry
I have the great privilege of taking part in the The 2,996 Project. Each participant is to make a tribute to a victim of 9/11. As I posted earlier, I was assigned Lisa Marie Terry. I Googled her and I wondered if she would be happy with the tribute articles that people had written about her? I wondered if they did her justice? Probably not. Here is my attempt at a tribute to a woman that I will never meet, and that so many people are missing terribly. Lisa Marie Terry was a 42 year old Vice President for Marsh & McLennan. She was a mother of two year old twins, and she had a love for horses. I did not know Lisa, I have only read her tributes on various websites. She seemed like a beautiful person. On September 11, 2001 she was in the World Trade Center along with 295 of her colleagues. Although I do not know much about her, I am still sad for her family. She was a child of God, just as I am. Jesus died for her sins, and cared about every hair on her head. No one knows why the terrorist attacks happened, but I do know that the Lord takes care of his people. I know that God is taking care of Lisa's family too. I hope that they have felt comfort and peace in the last five years. I hope that people have surrounded them and showed them compassion. I hope that her children will grow up to remember her through pictures and stories. I pray that on September 11, 2006 Lisa's family will feel the warm and comforting hand of God holding them in His arms. When September 11, 2006 ends and the sun sets I know that the Lord will watch over them as they go to sleep... He will not forget them, He is always there.
