YESSSS!!!! One of my most surreal moments happened at 8:45 a.m. on 9/11/01. I worked in Portland, Maine at the time and was walking to my job, which began at 9:00. On the sidewalk I saw not one, not two, but THREE dead birds -- not all together, but within a couple of blocks of one another. I thought "wow, how unusual!" when I saw the first two. But when I saw the third dead bird, a voice clear as a bell said to me "Pray for those who have died and who are about to die." I will NEVER forget that voice or that command.

So - I paused on the sidewalk and said a quick prayer (I've learned to listen to voices in my head) then walked on to the office. A few minutes later the first plane hit the World Trade Tower.

These few minutes altered my life forever. I decided to devote my life to prayer - it seemed a very clear directive from God to do so - and I came to the convent on January 1, 2002.

The dead birds remain a mystery. There were not there on my return trip home.

Love - and prayers! - to all,
