On September 11, 2001, we
were all devastated by the events of that day. We
never thought this could happen in America, but
it did. Our lives have been changed forever.
first two nights after this event, I slept like a
baby. I had a feeling of guilt about sleeping so
soundly. On the third night, I was restless and
had bad dreams.
dreamed that I was in this huge wooden building
that had nothing but doors inside. I was being
chased by something unseen, and I would run
through one door and into another. I was running
for my life. I would wake up before I was caught,
but I was exhausted. I had the same recurring
dream for four nights in a row. I was so tired
and I needed sleep so much, but it didn't happen.
fifth night I went to bed and told myself I
needed to be up by 7 a.m. so I could get to
Prayer Group by 8:30. I slept peacefully all
night and woke up at 7 a.m. I turned over to get
out of bed but didn't make it. I went back to
sleep. I can't remember ever feeling so sleepy. I
woke up again and the clock said 7:06. I tried to
get up again but went back to sleep. Then I began
dreaming. This time I was outside the same
building, walking down a hill to go back inside.
There was only one door to enter. I walked up to
the door to go in when I saw a key in the door.
Instead of unlocking the door, I took the key in
my right hand and walked away. Then I woke up and
the clock said 7:11. I sat up on the side of the
bed and opened my hand to see the key. Of course
there was no physical key, but those dreams
seemed so real. I made it to Prayer Group that
morning and I have had no more of those dreams.
interpretation of these dreams -- I was being
chased by Satan, who knew I was vulnerable. He
was after my soul. The key I walked away with was
Jesus Christ leading me away from evil.
I am the Lord, your God who takes hold of your
right hand says to you, "Do not fear, I will

my mom in the hopes it will help someone who is
afraid and vulnerable. Thanks mom and God bless!
