Will and John were firefighters called in to do battle with the Twin Towers on that terrible day we call 9-11. They were in one of the towers when it collapsed. After being buried alive under debris all day and into the night, Will had a vision. He saw a bright light and a robed man walking toward him. He woke up and told John (his boss who is buried with him) what he’d seen. "The most amazing thing just happened. I saw Jesus. And you know what? He had a bottle of water (chuckles). And I could have drunk it, you know? But I didn’t drink it. He’s telling us something, Sarge. He’s telling us to come home. Don’t sleep on me, John."

John: "No. The pain’s keeping me alive. Keep talking."

A table prepared in the presence of the enemy.
