Except for the bloodthirsty lunatics who are waiting for us to drop our guard again......

I'm still too angry to forget. I doubt that will ever change.

How ironic that on 9/11 radical Muslims attack U.S. Embassy in Egypt and consulate in Libya and Obama apologizes to them because they are "offended" by a movie being produced in this country. Up is now down and salt is now pepper. Too many of my fellow citizens have fallen asleep again since 9/11, but I do believe that the Muslim Brotherhood intends to wake us up again and soon.

Brooke said...

Chuck: Yes.

Gator: WHAT?!? I just Googled what you mentioned; I hadn't heard Obama had apologized! Can this man be any more vile or hate America any more???

I don't want to live on this planet anymore!

And yes, the Islamists will attack us given half the chance!

Also, my sixth-grader learned about 9-11 in school yesterday. I was impressed by the fair manner in which the material was presented.

Of course, the school did not expound upon the motives of the terrorists... I had to do that.

However, they watched the footage of the towers coming down, even the poor people who had to leap out. They watched President Bush's speech, and brought home a transcript.

Aileen said that almost every kid in the class was tearing up or trying not to cry.

Brooke: My girls went to a private Catholic school because we feared the public schools in our area and with good reason.

Dinner time at our house was when we, as a family, discussed school issues, work issues, current events, etc. Our girls have been raised to entertain more than one idea in their heads at one time and yet to come to their own conclusions at the end.

On the morning of 9/11/01 as we watched in horror, we decided that whatever happened, we wanted our girls with us. Mr. Cube rushed to the school and picked up our girls who were in tears because they'd been watching events on TV. One little boy, the Elisha Cook Jr. of his generation, was crying that we were all going to die.

Once home, Mr. Cube powered up the mower tractor and drove the girls around our big yard... he even let them drive. It took their minds off the horror we were all feeling.

It was a horrible day. I was in a rage for about 10 days... it was only then that I was able to cry, but the rage hasn't dissipated, it's just smouldering.
