AMERICA, HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN … PLEASE DON’T
Do not ever let anyone tell you that it an act of intolerance to remember what happened on September11, 2001. The United States is the most tolerant country ever created. We have religious freedom in the United States, which is more than I can say for the many other countries around the world. Maybe folks need to be tolerant and considerate of those who lost so much 9 years ago today? Why don’t we hear that message from the politicians in power? Because in the PC world they live in, they have forgotten. Those who forget then past are destined to repeat it.
Today represents the 9th anniversary of September 11, 2001, a date that will forever live in infamy and a day that should never be forgotten. While watching the news coverage and video footage this morning a tear came to my eye and that same horrible feeling that I felt 9 years ago. I remember the exact place and thing that I was doing when I heard news that the first plane had hit one of the towers of the World Trade Center. Then the horrible feeling I felt in my stomach as I watched live the second plane crash into the Twin Towers and I knew our world would never be the same again.
Have you forgotten America? Have you forgot what you were doing that fateful day as 3000 of our fellow brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, cousins, grandparents, loved ones and friends died that day? Have you forgot the image of the Muslim terrorist flying hijacked planes into the World Trade Center Twin Towers, not once but twice?
Have you forgotten the scenes of another hijacked plane crashing into the Pentagon? Have you forgotten the image, the sights, the screams and the disbelief of watching the Twin Towers fall and all the life lost? Have you forgot the images of people jumping to their deaths rather than being burned alive? Have you forgotten the bravery of the emergecy rescue workers, police, and firman rushing into the burning buildings to save others and making the ultimate sacrifice?
Michelle Malkin tells us not to forget as well and asks us to remember, ”Remembrance is worthless without resolve. Resolve is useless without action.”
Take a good listen to those that were there when the towers fell, have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten the bravery of those aboard Flight 93 and those who sacrificed their lives in order to save others. These people crashed the plane in a field in Shanksville, PA knowing that other planes had been hijacked and crashed into buildings. Never forget hero Todd Beamer’s last audible words on Flight 93 as he and his fellow hero passengers stormed the cockpit, “Are you guys ready? Let’s roll.”
LET’S ROLL: THE STORY OF FLIGHT 93
Remember the ultimaet victims of 9-11, THE CHILDREN!
Do not ever forget the leadership provided by President George W. Bush when on on the bullhorn he stated to the American people,“I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And, the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”
