    We will never forget...

    I also want to remember how we came together as a country the following day.

    We weren't Democrats or Republicans, Liberals or Conservatives.

    We were simply human beings coming together, united as one.

    We were Americans.

    I only wish we could still come together like we did then. It seems we are only ever able to do so after some really tragic event.

Bringing bags of scorched bodies and parts into the courtyard is quite impossible to forget. Attending their funerals at Arlington, or hearing the out of proportion number of graveside salutes shot out in their honor while at work, is something I sonetimes would like to forget, but know I should not.

    But I've met many people who were not there, or were not yet born, who do forget.

    On September 11, 2001 the People of the US came together for a common cause. It took an attack on the US to do that. That unity showed when Osama Bin Laden was killed years later. The People do not have short memories of attacks on them. We are a great nation when we share a common existential enemy. We are not when we fight ourselves as politicians incite.

    Iím sorry to say but we have forgotten. I look at a couple of members of Congress, the msm bending over backwards to kiss their butts, the anti-Christian pro muslim SJW, and more.

    We have forgotten and it will kill us.

    I remember saying to the wife on that day: "If there's any good at all coming from this maybe it'll serve to wake us up and bring us all together as a country". As it would seem exactly the opposite has happened. Haven't we come a long way since 9/11/01 though?

    18 years now but I remember exactly what I was doing that morning.

    The people you mention havenít forgotten. They never gave a damn in the first place, and hate this country to boot.

    Looks like we have gone the ďwrong wayĒ in lieu of the long way. This needs to be stopped before it gets worse.

    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    I donít think they love or hate America, they just want to be famous and rich. They feel entitled and that theyíre better than us. It infuriates me to be talked down to by those short sighted fools. we will persevere, DONít TREAD ON ME, God bless America
