Below is the White House press release which tells Americans how we ought to remember the events and players of September 11, 2001.
“A chief goal of our communications is to present a positive, forward-looking narrative,”
“As we commemorate the citizens of over 90 countries who perished in the 9/11 attacks, we honor all victims of terrorism, in every nation around the world. We honor and celebrate the resilience of individuals, families, and communities on every continent, whether in New York or Nairobi, Bali or Belfast, Mumbai or Manila, or Lahore or London.”
Just a few random thoughts:
1. Al Qaeda and Muslims fueled by hate are empowered by "peaceful" Muslims worldwide who do not take a stand against attacks like this. We need to wise up and acknowledge once and for all, Islam is NOT a peaceful religion. The Qur'an is filled with hate and the Muslims of 9/11 were simply following it's teachings.
2. Al Qaeda and Muslim extremists, empowered by the silent Muslim masses, where not aiming at the "citizens of over 90 countries". They were aiming at Americans and ONLY Americans. Now they got a whole lot more than that, but they were only after us.
3. "Perished"...that seems so sterile doesn't it? They were and then they were not, all just kinda peaceful. Let's be certain of this, some, in the jets, once they figured out what was happening, died terrified. Some died by a horrific explosion and fire...some instantly, many slowly. Many, with no way out, died on impact with the ground after a 700 foot or higher terror filled plunge. Some died a slow excruciating death under tons of rubble. I'm sorry, "perished" just doesn't cut it for me.
4. "Resilient"...I wonder if the thousands who lost a husband, wife, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, brother or good friend would describe themselves as resilient? I'll bet there are a hundred other words they would use first. heartbroken, grieved, lonely, sorrow filled, unconsolable, empty, distraught, angry, confused, lost...shall I go on?
It seems the whole plan is that we all just be happy friends with the world and forget what happened and move on. Do not miss my point, we do need to move on, but we should never, NEVER forget or we will be doomed to fall prey to hate filled evil again and again. The truth is there are those out there who will do ANYTHING to attack and destroy our way of life...if we forget that...they may succeed.
