The first part of this entry was a post I made two years ago. Not much has changed since that day, except for the growing outrage and blatant division of the American people.
Say to me what you will, Mr. Obama, but I will remember September 11, 2001 how it was truly was, and how it truly has become.
Two Years Ago…
Whether you are a conspiracy theorist or not, if you were old enough to remember back 8 years ago, at this very moment (the time of this post – [September 11, 8:46 am]), then you know that a commercial plane, filled with passengers, dove into Tower 1 of the WTC in New York City. [9:03 am], exactly 17 minutes later, another plane, also filled with passengers, dove into Tower 2 of the WTC. 34 minutes have now passed of people all across the globe watching as the towers burn when a third plane dove into the Pentagon. Even those that had doubts about the first two planes and the destruction of the two tallest towers of the WTC had no doubt at 9:37 am, that this was indeed an intentional terroristic attack on the United States, and on its own soil. But thanks to a few brave Americans on a forth, less known plane, at 10:03 am, more lives were lost, yet more were also spared, for that plane did not reach its intended target of the White House in Washington, D.C. In the end, approximately 3000 lives were lost that day at the hands of the pilots of those planes.
Many people do a memorial posting on this event, and in a way, this is too, with the exception that in truly honoring all the lives lost, it must be pointed out that America did not learn its lesson. No matter who is ultimately to blame for the attacks on innocent civilians on September 11, 2001, Americans have fallen asleep yet again and are in dire need of another wake-up call. If the message sent that day did not teach people a very valuable lesson, then I am afraid nothing short of a tragedy in ones own personal life will. Well, if things continue to go as they have been, particularly since January 20, 2009, then that tragedy very well may occur.
Whether the Bush Administration had forewarning of the events of this day 8 years ago, or even if they helped plan it or not, who can deny that it was Muslim extremists at the helm of what turned into a day of awakening? Take a very close look at the truth that surrounds you. The truth that stares you in the face on a monthly basis on prime time television. Read the news, discern for yourselves what reality is versus the perpetrated lies most tend to fall prey to.
September 11…… the day that is already written in many school history books. A day that should stand out on its own is now being cast aside and shadowed by new events.
* In Hawaii, the alleged home state of America’s current President, Barrack Hussein Obama, “[a] resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote.” Less than 2 full weeks after the most memorable day in America’s recent history, a proclamation is set down to honor a religion that bred the extremists. (This is not an argument session about religion. All religions have their shortcomings in history as well as their positive fulfillments in an individual believer’s life.)
*On September 2, 2009, “President Obama decided to honor the Muslim religion at a reception to mark the end of the religion’s holy month of Ramadan.
“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country,” Obama said at the iftar, the dinner that breaks the holiday’s daily fast.The president joined Cabinet secretaries, members of the diplomatic corps and lawmakers to pay tribute to what he called “a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress.”
Two nights before this day of memoriam, President Obama gives a speech to the nation regarding the health care plan where he stated, “anyone that can afford health care but does not have it, will be required to obtain this coverage”. He spoke of how illegal immigrants, which people need to be reminded does not only include those from Mexico but all countries, would not be covered, to which Rep. Wilson from South Carolina literally spoke out, during this televised speech, something we all feel – “You lie!”.
Our country has fallen to its knees yet again, and this time, it was at the hands of the American people, not outsiders, unless you include the death votes, the non-existent voter’s votes, and the alleged double-votes. How quickly people tend to forget that it is the world’s view of our arrogance, ignorance, and laziness of the American people that causes this country to be disliked by so many others. If we cannot stand united as one, as we did on September 11-14, 2001, then the tragedy of this day, 8 years ago, means all those lives were lost in vain.
Two Years Later – Today, September 2011…
Videos are posted on YouTube, such as “Obama the Muslim – His Own Words“, show how our nation’s leader has, more than once, shown where his true loyalties lie.
Mr. Obama backed the refurbishment of a building into a Mosque at ground zero; a building that leaves Americans who remember 9/11/01 as a tragic day, gritting their teeth and raising their voices in opposition.
Notwithstanding the news surrounding the pick-and-choose Middle East civil unrests Obama has chosen to involve our American military in, or the rise in military deaths in Afghanistan, especially as of late, or the executive order calling for the assassination of Osama bin Laden, the leader of the “free world” has issued “talking points” guidelines on how federal officials and American diplomats worldwide shall remember the 10th Anniversary of an American nightmare.
To mark the 10th Anniversary, Mayor Bloomberg of NY has forbidden any clergy from attending the anniversary event, as well as refusing to invite the plethora of first responders who saved a great many lives while losing some of their own.
Obama’s ‘Talking Points’… (see Marking 9/11: Obama Aides Defend ‘Talking Points’)
“minimize reference to Al-Qaeda” because since the killing of bin Laden it is becoming “increasingly irrelevant”
Overseas officials are instructed to remember America’s 9/11 event by stating: “We honor all victims of terrorism, in every nation…whether in New York or Nairobi, Bali or Belfast, Mumbai or Manila, or Lahore or London.”
Guideline recipients are reminded: “A chief goal of our communications is to present a positive, forward-looking narrative.”
“The White House suggested the guidelines were unworthy of media attention.” (Marking 9/11: Obama Aides Defend ‘Talking Points’)
“…by telling the country to be ‘resilient,’ it’s kind of a code word for saying, ‘Hey, I’m as good as you are. We’ll all be resilient together.’ But that’s not what 9/11 really ought to be about. The politics of it are less important than the lives of Americans lost.”” (Democratic political consultant Hank Sheinkopf) – I agree!
In honoring all those lives lost at the hands of extremists, no matter their nationality, and in honoring all those who deserve to be recognized, in person, for their heroism, I will relive the events of the day, that should be in the forefront of all our minds on the 10th Anniversary of September 11, 2001. I will continue to feel the anger and the pain that brought this country to its knees on one day, while building bridges in what it means to truly be an American, no matter the color of our skin, our gender, or social status, the next. I will turn my back on Barack Obama as he addresses those allowed to be at the 10th Anniversary Memorial Event (by turning off my television since I’m not invited to attend). I will continue to pound the grass to its roots in an effort to elect real leaders in positions of government so the American People can take America back!
