September 11th – Remember, We’re Americans

Never forget.

The Israelis, Jewish folk and freedom-loving people every where intone this phrase when referring to The Holocaust.

With regard to September 11, 2001, we should have the same exclamation, the same passion, the same outrage.

The same remembrance.  All Americans.

While I remember many specifics from that day; what came out later regarding Flight 93 really resonates with me.

In similar circumstances, would I, a crippled, physically slow, older, overweight, guy – who hasn’t been in any kind of physical training or conditioning since 1986 – have the cojones to rush homicidal terrorists armed with sharp objects?

I’d like to think so.  And I’d like to think I’m not alone.  This is the American Spirit.

Americans are famous for going the extra mile, against the odds, to combat evil.  Just ask any WWII, Korea or Vietnam veteran.  Or veterans of the Iraq or Afghanistan wars.  Or the cops and firefighters who voluntarily went in,when everyone else was leaving.

In addition, Better Wisdom and Pith,  an opinion, courtesy of Roberta…

It bothers me when we give such criminals the dignity of soldiers; it bothers me when we’ve let them swipe a whole day from the calendar.

And it bothers me a lot when the lamestream media drape the day in deep black and use it to tell us we’ve got to bend ourselves to the State; that the State was attacked, and the State responded, and only the State can protect us from the awful scourge of superstitious goat-herders….

Take a moment today and remember.  And commit again to the American Spirit.

Never forget.

  1. We should be remembering 9/11 by pointing to the radioactive sheet of fused desert sand where the terrorists used to live, saying, “See what happens when you screw with the United States of America?” ‘Cause I know THEY’D remember it, and go someplace else if they manage a “next time”.

    • While I agree philosophically, which region of desert sand?
      This is the paradox of brushfire wars against tribes and movements – no defined borders.
      I harken back to the whole ‘shores of Tripoli’, when we didn’t pay tribute or take crap from anyone. Or bow.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
