Another 9-11 anniversary has come and gone. It has been now 17 years since that tragic day awoke a sleeping giant in nearly the same way December 7, 1941 did. Unlike the day that will “live in infamy” the giant this time, sadly, soon went right back to sleep.
Today far to many people have no idea of the scope of what actually happened that day. That is a tragedy in and of itself. Compounding that sad reality is the fact that many of our “leaders” are just fine with that.
In Sandy, Utah, not far from my home a memorial service is held every year. It’s called “The Healing Field.” In short, it is a field of soft, green grass, with the majestic Rocky Mountains as the background, planted with a single flag for every one lost on that horrible day. Each flag carries a picture of the person who was murdered that day along with a short biography. Standing in the midst of all those flags, the true enormity of what happened that day is overwhelming. In a moment of silence one can almost hear the victims whispering to you in the flapping sounds of all those flags. No picture, no description will, or can, do it justice. It must be seen, and felt, in person.
The volunteers who man this testament to the lives stolen tell everyone that, if a flag touches you while you are walking around it is because that person wants you to get to know them. I suspect there is more truth to that than we can imagine. I have gotten to know many of the victims.
For a very short while after the attack, we were all Americans. Liberals, democrats and progressives (there is virtually no difference between them) ran to America’s defense, only to abandon her days later. That abandonment was swift, brutal, total and typical of how liberals, democrat and progressives think and act.
The poor souls who died in the towers were called “little Eichmans”, a hideous and completely fabricated NAZI reference whose only intent was to demean, or perhaps endorse, their murder.
We allowed our sworn enemy to blind us with the meaningless propaganda of “islamophobia.” We not only tolerated but accepted the inane concept that accurately describing islam made us “racists.” For the record islam is a religion not a race. (It is a sad indictment of our education system that something so blinding obvious needs to be explained)
Despite a complete lack of evidence, we have allowed ourselves to be browbeaten into accepting that hate crimes against moslems are at an all time high. In fact, nearly every “hate” crime reported ends up being an islamic perpetrated hoax. Even then, we are not allowed notice that fact.
Instead of mourning the hideousness of what was perpetrated in the name of their god, our alleged fellow citizens, the aforementioned liberals, democrats and progressives, have intentionally concocted a swirling, white hot mass of anti American vitriol which they spew with glee. For them, 9-11 is simply another “crisis” that must not be allowed “to go to waste.”
They have placed their cards on the table. They hate the country I love, the country me, my father and grandfather all served proudly. They actively despise the one country that has done more good for the entire world than any other country in the planets history. I get it. You are entitled to your opinion, however misguided, misinformed or evil it may be.
I have placed my cards on the table as well. I am just as pissed off over what happened 17 years ago now as I was then. I will not forget. I will do everything I can to be certain that something like that never happens again. I will point out at every opportunity the vapid stupidity of the America haters alleged facts. The victims, their families and those who survived 9-11 deserve nothing less.
