We Must Never Ever Forget 9/11



How could we, as a nation, ever forget 9/11? Unfortunately it seems like some have distanced themselves from the reality of those horrific attacks, and maybe even forgotten. We must never forget!! We must never forget the evil which we encountered head on on September 11, 2001. As we remember the lives that were lost ten years ago we must remain ever vigilant as we continue to encounter the threats of terrorism today.

Unfortunately political correctness has run amok for fear of offending one so called religious group and for that this group will react with vengeance and violence.  Why are we worrying about how Muslim extremists will react when we know these people are not rational beings?  If Islam, which has cloaked itself in religiosity while adhering to political extremist views, was not recognized as a religion, would it be considered acceptable or a constitutional right to have a building built on or in close proximity to Ground Zero, where that ideology murdered 3000 innocents?  People claim that before the attacks happened that this was not considered hallowed ground so it shouldn't matter what building is on or around Ground Zero but circumstances change things from not being hallowed ground to being hallowed ground.  There are still ashes and other remnants of citizens who died in those Towers on 9/11 and that makes that area on and around Ground Zero hallowed ground.

Unfortunately, some Americans have forgotten the evil nature of the 9/11 attacks and how those attacks posed a threat to all of humanity.
Or would some Americans have been duped by Muslim consultants into having a Flight 93 Memorial which is in the form of a crescent and faces Mecca?

A majority of Americans WILL NEVER FORGET the evil which occurred on September 11, 2001.  Unfortunately some have fallen sully into a pre-9/11 mentality and are not heeding the warnings of the 9/11 Commission.  The 9/11 Commission pointed out that prior to 9/11 the U.S. treated acts of terrorism as if they were merely criminal acts instead of acts of war. There are some who advocate for "rights" for terrorists which they are not granted under our Constitution. These terrorists are more than criminals, they are our enemies who threaten our way of life, our very existence. Those "rights' that those who have forgotten advocate are such things as trials in federal courts versus holding these terrorists accountable in miltary commissions.  These terrorists' acts of violence are more heinous and more of a threat to us than a typical criminal.

Muslim extremists made it abundantly clear on 9/11 that they are at war with America.  These Muslim extremists and their ilk hate freedom and liberty.  They believe in tyranny under sharia.

We must continue to remember those who acted heroically on 9/11 and the days shortly afterward. On that painful day Americans of all backgrounds and all walks of life came together as one to help and support one another amidst the chaos of tragedy. We must not let these people who lost their lives on 9/11 die in vain. We must never forget the face of evil which murdered them.  We must do our best to stop that kind of evil from entering our shores again, like it did on 9/11.

WE MUST NEVER EVER FORGET 9/11

The students who were reading with President Bush when we learned that our country was under a terrorist attack are speaking out 10 years later.






Here are pictures from 9/11:

Here is the smoldering remains of the World Trade Center

Smoke rises behind investigators on September 12 as they comb the Pennsylvania field where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed.



While most able-bodied occupants of the north tower fled down stairwells to safety, firefighters such as Mike Kehoe (pictured) headed up to help the wounded.
Kehoe's Ladder 11 firehouse lost six men that day, but he survived to face a life forever changed not only by 9/11 but by the iconic image in which he unwittingly appeared.
"In some ways Mike Kehoe came to symbolize the firefighters," Chanin said.



Still from video by CNN via Getty Images
A video still shows American Airlines Flight 77 slamming into the western side of the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, at 9:37 a.m. ET on 9/11, claiming the lives of 59 persons on board.
In addition, 125 military and civilian employees at work inside the Pentagon were killed by the crash.




This picture of a piece of United Airlines Flight 93 lying in a Pennsylvania field on September 14 was introduced as evidence during the trial that linked Zacarias Moussaoui to al Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks.
Moussaoui was sentenced to life without parole in 2006.

December 7, 1941 is Pearl Harbor Day. We haven't forgotten that, and I don't think we'll forget 911 either. The left wants to change it, but I don't think that "Real America" will let them.

This is a such a sad day. What makes this worse than say other evets in history is that so many American (and Illegals) were happy to see us attacked. Then the Liberals who say we did it to ourselves.
We Must be Proud of those who gave their lives to help others on that terrible day. Thanks for the pictures.

I am certain that on that September day there were angels among us, and I would imagine that they too wept…

I’m a big strong guy, but I am not the least bit bothered to tell you, I wept, from anger, from compassion, from a feeling of total helplessness, and yes, even fear, not fear for myself, but fear for my family and their immediate safety…

I was 1,500 miles from home that day and all I could think of was getting home to my wife and making sure my children were safe, and I couldn’t do that…

None of us knew what the future held, we still don’t, but I hope with all my heart that these same angels are with us now…

I can’t speak for all Americans, but I know that I am still hurting, every day that goes by I remember 9-11, and I don’t know if a *healing* will ever take place in me, but I pray for the lives of those affected in an even more direct fashion, I pray for our firefighters, police officer and our troops… I pray that ALL of America will wake up to the dangers around us and unite in an effort to defeat the evils that threaten our lives and freedoms.

No matter where that evil comes from!

I will NEVER forgive and I will NEVER forget!

Odie,

I think that most people in America will never forget 9/11.

Teresa said...

Florida,

It really makes my blood boil when liberals say that we did this to ourselves. It makes it obvious to me that liberals don't understand the evil nature of our enemies. Remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice that day is very important.

Teresa said...

TexasFred,

I agree with you that there were angels among us that day. I also believe that there are many more angels watching over us today due to those horrific attacks that happened that day.

I had tears in my eyes, was in shock, felt a bit vulnerable or scared, and was angry at the evil which took the lives of so many much too soon.

God Bless America!

Pedaling said...

I will always remember.
Thanks for sharing the pictures, there were several there I had not before seen.
I remember thanking God it was Bush at the stead instead of Gore.
Many prayers were given and answered throughout those days.

Fuzzy Slippers said...

Wow, this is a very powerful post, Teresa. We won't forget, and it's because of people like you that the memory stays alive. God bless you, and God bless America. And Odie. ;) and All of us.

The Conservative Lady said...

Wonderful tribute, Teresa. We must never forget.

Matt said...

A fitting tribute Teresa. We can't forget, nor should we.

Nice post Teresa.

"Muslim extremists made it abundantly clear on 9/11 that they are at war with America. These Muslim extremists and their ilk hate freedom and liberty. They believe in tyranny under sharia."

Exactly, many lazily waffle that it was about scaring us and making us hate each other. That's just part of it.

We know who did it, we know what inspired them and we will not forget. We stand with you America.

Nice post Teresa, we won't forget, count on it.

Most Rev. Gregori said...

I can never forget, as I lost a cousin and a good friend. But besides never forgetting, we must NEVER again allow Bloomberg or anyone else to prevent members of the clergy or first responders from having a role in the proceedings that mark the memorial at Ground Zero, in the future. I believe Bloomberg is a despicable lout for what he did.

Teresa said...

Bishop Gregori,

I didn't realize that Father Mychal Judge was a good friend of yours. Here is a post I think you will like - http://catholibertarian.com/2011/09/11/remembering-911-ten-years-later-honoring-the-fallen-fdny-heroes-and-their-chaplain-fr-mychal-judge/

I am in full agreement with you when you said that we must never allow Bloomberg (Dhimmidumberg) to ban clergy ever again. We must never let him violate the Clergy's Constitutional rights ever again.

Bob Belvedere said...

Very well put, Tere.

Never Forget.
Never Despair.

And thank you for including me in your wonderful post.

I've been to all three 9/11 sites.

For me, Shanksville is the most moving. Why? Because those patriots about Flight 93 fought back!
