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.

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.
