There is a whole generation of people who were never taught about that fateful day.
And I think a lot of people who were alive on that day have forgotten.
History is not being taught to our children. Progressives want to erase history so they can re-write it. History is necessary so that we can learn from it and not make the same mistakes again.
This video brought tears to my eyes. I will NEVER FORGET that day. I was on a shuttle bus, on my way to college campus when the bus driver suddenly turned the sound up on his radio. It took a few minutes for people to stop talking and start listening. It was shocking. I made it to campus just in time to watch the second plane dive into the second tower. The busy campus was silent. Everyone stood stock still and stared. Walking through campus after that was like walking through a graveyard. People were zombies. Many were crying. It was horrific to think of all of those innocent lives being burned in the towers.
And then, watching them fall and people running to try and escape the huge, toxic smoke clouds chase them down the street.
I have to wonder, would Americans have the same reaction today? Would something like this unite us once again, or have we eroded our patriotism down so far into the gutter that people would actually cheer?
I’m afraid we all know the answer to that question.
I truly don’t understand the riots and the violence right now. I guess I could at first because people were thinking (incorrectly, I might add), that police exist to hunt black people down. Police exist to maintain law and order. It’s easy to understand – don’t break the law. And if you find yourself in a situation where the police have been called, don’t resist arrest. Fight it out in front of a judge.
These brats that riot, loot and execute people who don’t agree with them need to be shipped off to Cuba, or Africa, or China, where they don’t have rights and they exist to serve a communist government. You think America is unjust? Try stepping outside her borders.
