Remember, Yes. Remember What, Depends

We've all seen the subtle reminders.  

9/11 We Remember

9/11 Never Forget

Anybody that was alive during that day I doubt will ever forget.  I can tell you every moment of my day.  I'm sure many can as well.  It's one of those "Where were you when?" moments in history.  Each year we get the yearly reminder, "Never Forget".

I sort of laugh internally at the reminder.  I'm not laughing at the day, I'm laughing at the fact that the yearly reminder to remember reminds me how much we've forgotten.  That sentence sounds like an Abbott & Costello routine.

We seem to forget 9/12 and the weeks that followed.  We truly were United.  We were bonded together as a unit against the evil that tried to destroy our free way of life.  I look around at all the divides that exist in our country, race, religions, incomes, politics and many others.  All those divisions were bridged for a short time by 9/11.  Why have we not been able to remember those bridges?

President Obama went on TV last night to describe our country's plan with this new terrorist klan, ISIL.  Yeah, we all hate ISIL let's get them.  We found an enemy we can all agree on.  Imagine if we united on other things, like hunger or employment.  We would be unstoppable.

We don't need to keep fighting amongst ourselves, we have enough outside the U.S. battles to fight.

Keep on remembering.  Just don't stop on 9/11, the rest was worth remembering too.

Hey Einstein,

Obama created ISIS. His middle name is "Hussein". Wake up.

Hey "Anonymous"......you ARE kidding right?

I don't think Obama intentionally created Isis or Isil or whatever the new name is. I do believe he was instrumental in dividing the people of this country through his own words and actions. I hope and pray he uses his last days as president to do something to unite all of us even if it doesn't help the Democratic party or his fortune. Good luck Americans ::== (A flag??)

I will not argue with Anony's. I show my face, have the maturity to stand for something beside ignorance.

And I bet you voted for Obama twice. Talk about ignorance.

Mark Ploch said...

The fact that I vote for our President twice is truth. You spew ignorant rhetoric, "His middle name is "Hussein"". Please take your place in ignorant history and do whatever you do.

Hey, someone out there who still admits he voted for this clown twice. Bravo good sir!

You seem like an educated person. Maybe it is time for you to do some research on "your" President and find out who he really is.

Then again you have drank so much of the kool aid I doubt it would matter much. Lenin was right about "useful idiots".
