9/11 - Never Forget!

September 11 – Never Forget

2,977 People died when terrorist attacked us on our American soil

Do you think it is just a coincidence that we were attacked by terrorist every few years before 9/11/01 (USS Cole, World Trade Center Bombing) but since 9/11 we have not been attacked again? Do you think they have not tried? America was diligent after 9/11 in protecting ourselves from terrorist by going out and defeating terrorists on their own soil. Has our current president forgotten that fateful day? Obama no longer calls it the war on terror and now it is an overseas contingency. We have can no longer question terrorists for important information, which has proven to have stopped terrorists attacks already, because they now get U.S. constitutional rights as if they were an American. The terrorists we have detained are getting sent to U.S. prisons right in our backyard (with many getting released already) because the President believes it is “politically incorrect” to have a prison just for the terrorists in Guantanamo Bay.

We must always stay diligent, we can never forget our troops fighting overseas to defeat terrorists on their soil before the terrorists can come here (there are many soldiers getting deployed to Iraq later this year from the National Guard Unit I am in so local soldiers are still fighting), we must never forget the 2,977 lives that were lost on that fateful day.

We must NEVER FORGET 9/11

  1. THANK YOU David. What were you doing exactly 8 years ago? Everyone remembers where they were that fateful day. Thank you for reminding us all that we vowed to "never forget". I for one haven't. As a 911 Paramedic, I watched as my brothers rushed into those buildings and were slaughtered. I watched for months as their bodies were carried home by their friends and families. At the EMS service where I work, we have decals prominently displayed comemorating our fallen of 911. Both of my sons served in the Military, as did I. One as a Naval Police Officer at Guantanimo Bay. Thank You for reminding us all of the sacrafices we have asked of our children, and of our friends.
