We are all sinners and every gift is all Grace. Those who survived just survived, those who perished just perished.
There is no reason or higher purpose for their deaths unless there had been a higher purpose for their lives.
Little Asia Cottom had purpose to her life. This purpose lives on, even a decade after her death.
11-year-old Asia Cottom was one of three Middle School scholars on their way to study marine biology for 4 days in California. These exceptional children earned scholarships from The National Geographic Society to do the research, then return home to write about their findings. They and the three teachers who accompanied them, perished in the 9/11 Pentagon crash.
