Wow, 11 years. I almost wasn't going to write this, but it's late, my sleeping pills have kicked in and that's when I see I write the best. Anniversary is a funny world. You are supposed to celebrate something good that happens on an anniversary, but for September 11th, there is nothing good. I mean, the amount of outpour that came from across the land, the nation and even the world to our country was good, and people had walked a little prouder for being an American, flags were all over the city, people were kinder to strangers and seemed to watch out for odd things in their cities. What happened to that same commitment 11 years after the fact? My flag has been flying even before the terrible events of 9/11, and will continue to fly till I'm long gone, I'll make sure my kids fly it and know why they are flying it. Not just because of what happened on that fall day, but because we are Americans and damn proud of it. I love the fact that my son says the Pledge of Allegiance in school and yes, even for me says it the right way, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, everyone else get the hell over it, or seriously, get out of my country. That's how it was written and that's now it should ALWAYS be said. And yes, even for us Pagans, GOD is in the Pledge and on our money, I get it, why doesn’t everyone else.
By recent events that have happened just in general on the internet I've become VERY disenchanted with a lot of things. One, young people. I'm pretty much sick and tired of most of them. There are a few that I am friends with that I know I'll be friends with for a long time, they are my buddies, my girls, my closest friends and for that I'm grateful. But for the rest of the young population, most of you were not even what 10 when 9/11 happened, and you have NO IDEA why we went to war. Yes, of course, it went on for way too long, but there was a reason for it, not for oil, not to just slay and kill children like you all think is why, but for vindication on what they did to our United States citizens, citizens that were just going to work that day, not even in the military and that cuts to my very core.
In previous posts I've written what I was doing on that day and being in the Federal Center was the best place for me to be, and I'm so grateful for the friends and associates that I made there, and went on to an even better government job. One that my husband works at still now, and I have a lot of friends that still work there. If ANY thing like this were to happen again to just regular folks working, I hope to god that we finally drop a nuke on the bastards that did it and END it once and for all. Yes, this is an angry post because I'm sick and tired of the majority of our nation who have forgotten what happened on this day.
And seriously, I DONT WANT ANY FUCKING NEGATIVE COMMENTS ON THIS. If you have hate to put out there, do it on your own page, NOT MINE. That's why this is MY PAGE, for me to put what I want. I will delete ANY AND ALL dumb reply’s or comments to this. As I’ve stated, go and put it on YOUR page.
This is something that we CAN NEVER EVER FORGET and be wishy-washy about it. Do something today, do something important, help your neighbor out, go and put quarters in the meters to random cars, hug your partner and hug the hell out of your kids, because they and everyone else can be taken by the mindless act of assholes like what happened on Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
I'm not surprised that I'm still upset about this. This terrible act commited on our people has affected me more than I ever knew. From being born in D.C., traveling to NYC most of my life, and livnig close to Shanksville. It affects my very core and I'm pissed, I think I will always be pissed. And it makes me sad. I don't want my kids to see me upset or sad on this day, but it's a fact of life and I'm not going to lie to them about it. I've collected and saved videos, magazines, papers, everything that I could get my hands on for the last 11 years to show and tell them the truth of what happened. Not some sugar coated school text book watered down version but the TRUTH. And if they get in trouble with their teachers because of it, then they can come and talk to me personally. If they can't teach my childred the truth, then they have no reason to teach as far as I'm concerned.
DON'T FORGET, PERIOD.
