9/11 Memorial Poem 2018:
September 11, 2018: 3:47 p.m.: Always Remember:   Today is the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America in which airplanes hijacked by followers of Islam were flown into both World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and (because Todd Beamer and other passengers fought back) crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Thousands of Americans died, as did people in both WTC towers from other countries, and the people in the hijacked planes were killed on impact. My brother-in-law was working in the Pentagon at the time, but had a meeting in another building and had left just minutes prior to impact. My Aunt Sue was scheduled to be in one of the WTC towers that day to work a business deal for her employer (a power company for which she was Treasurer), and a friend of mine whom I met afterward worked in one of the WTC towers and was waiting for the elevator on the ground floor when the plane hit that tower and she left because something told her to. She survived and has a wonderful husband and two sons today. Today is a difficult day for those people, I'm sure. "Survivor's guilt" is real and I don't know that any of them have that problem, but I do know that they had skin in the game that day and because two of them were related to me, so did I. For me, it's personal. For me, it's real and for me, I shall ALWAYS REMEMBER. That's why I wrote what I shall consider my whole update for today:
9/11 Memorial Poem: The God of HatredThat's my update for today. ALWAYS REMEMBER. It wasn't a one time thing. Islam has continued to try to reign in terror since its inception. Do not think that they are confined to the Middle East and beheading whole towns of Christians there. It's here. It's now. It's time to face the facts. Let us be ready. Let us beware. Let us ALWAYS REMEMBER. GOD Bless the heroes of seventeen years ago today, the families and loved ones of those who were murdered and the people who have given their lives in the battle against the murderous beliefs. GOD Bless them all!
Remember: Anyone who does not give you a wake-up call when they see you being stupid, self-destructive, or both, just plain doesn't care about you. It's those of us who do wake you up who care.
