No American can let this day, 09/11/2008, go unnoticed for the events of 2001. The world stopped that day. I still can't think of that day without wanting to cry and the images are as real today as they were 7 years ago. When all is said and done.....We MUST BE UNITED. We must never let days such as 9/11 or events such as the Holocaust be forgotten. We must remember that to have true FREEDOM we must be willing to fight for freedom, we must defend freedom, and we must NEVER LET PEOPLE FORGET. That is the message of FACING HISTORY AND OURSELVES a school curriculum designed around the Holocaust and the fact that if we do not face our history, if we do not teach true history, if we do not fight intolerance, if we allow fascism to exist then WE create the situation where history, i.e., the Holocaust can be repeated.
Just think about how quickly we have forgotten the facts of that day (not Michael Moore's propaganda either). We have now come to believe that what is good is bad and what is bad is good..........
FACTS 7 years later (from White House Government website):
50 million people have been liberated, and two totalitarian regimes have been removed;
The al Qaeda network has been weakened;
We have not experienced another attack on American soil;
Our military has been transformed to meet the challenges of the 21st century;
We have expanded our intelligence capabilities to confront today's enemy; and
We have created new and essential institutions needed to wage the War on Terror, including the Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
Remember...other countries have had devastating terrorist attacks since 9/11. We have NOT. The behind the scenes work is keeping us safe.....yet, statistically, it is not a matter of IF, but WHEN will the next homeland attack be.........DO NOT LET THESE PEOPLE DIE IN VAIN. DO NOT FORGET. Fly your flag today!!!!!
