Today is the 6th anniversary, to the day, of the horrific Islamic terrorist attacks on America. With the country divided like it hasn't been since the Vietnam War, I plead with all patriotic Americans to stop and remember what really happened six years ago.
On this day in 2001 liberals weren't attacked. Conservatives weren't attacked. Christians weren't attacked. Atheists weren't attacked. Blacks weren't attacked. Whites weren't attacked. Men weren't attacked. Women weren't attacked. Straights weren't attacked. Gays weren't attacked. The poor weren't attacked. The rich weren't attacked. What happened on September 11, 2001 is that AMERICANS were attacked.
Nineteen Islamic terrorists targeted all Americans when they hijacked those planes and flew them into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. The terrorists were telling us that they hated ALL of us. They didn't try to divide their victims by color, gender, class or any other category that, sadly, so many Americans are obsessed with. No, the nineteen Muslim murderers hijacked planes and destroyed them with no concern for which Americans were on them.
We must remember. REMEMBER!!!! On 9/11 we were attacked as a single nation. We must defeat, indeed, we can ONLY defeat the killers as a SINGLE nation! And it WAS Islamic killers who committed this horrendous act. The troglodytes spouting hateful, anti-American conspiracy theories are servants of our enemies. They are fifth columnists working for America's defeat. They must be defeated as thoroughly as the Islamic militants who still want to kill us.
On September 11, 2001 the worst happened to this country, and we responded with the best. Firemen rushed into buildings that people were running out of. People filled the churches to pray for strength and guidance. Firemen carried a gay chaplain out of the rubble with no concern that he was gay. Americans of every race, class, religion, sexual orientation, and national origin declared they were Americans first, and the other things second. The best poured out of us because, as Alexis de Tocqueville said over a hundred years ago, America is great because America is good.
America is good!!!! That's something else we must remember this tragic day. We did nothing to cause the terrorists to attack us. Our foreign policy isn't to blame. Our freedom isn't to blame.
Our support for Israel isn't to blame. The only things to blame for 9/11 are the terrorists and their religion. Remember that, my fellow Americans. Remember the horror. Remember the death. Remember the Fallen, who suffered unimaginable anguish as they perished. Remember America, remember. Then ask God to have mercy on our enemies, because we won't.
