Forget? I Don't Think So

We have just observed the 18th anniversary of September 11, 2001, the day almost three thousand people left home going to work, to catch planes, or whatever else the morning required of them, never to return, many of them reduced to a cup full of ashes or just part of a limb by the kind of evil that can only originate in the depths of hell.

The demonic actions of a handful of Islamic terrorists destroyed two of the world’s most magnificent buildings, decimated a ring of the Pentagon and took down three commercial airliners full of innocent American citizens.

It interrupted life in America as nothing else in our history had, forcing us to take a hard look at the freedoms we took for granted, and realize that there was an enemy in the world that could not be defined within geographical borders, nationality or origin, but a worldwide radical religious movement whose ultimate goal is to destroying Judeo-Christian faiths and all the human beings who believe in them.

We had seen it before, around the world, the relentless efforts of blind hate, murder and destruction, funded by intractable old Mullahs who always stay within the confines of their safe surroundings while sending fanatical young radicals to their deaths by promising them a male-dominated paradise of sensual delights.

But this was America and nobody would dare incur our wrath, we were safe in our cocoon of invincibility and military might, no third world country controlled by Islamist fanatics would be stupid enough to send suicide bombers against the world’s only remaining superpower.

Or so we thought.

It happened and it continues to happen, in America and around the world and until the governments who sponsor this slaughter are held accountable it will continue to happen.

The world knows that Iran is and has been the biggest exporter of terrorism, and yet an American president sent planes loaded with international currency amounting to billions of dollars in an attempt to appease these monsters enough to get them to sign a worthless piece of paper that was supposed to halt their efforts to perfect nuclear weapons.

There is no placating these people, treaties mean nothing to them and infidel human life means even less and they will continue to destroy as many as they can in their attempt to spread a radical brand of Islam where women are treated like slaves, homosexuals are casually tossed off the tops of tall buildings and dissidents are burned in iron cages.

And there are many in America who say we should just forget what happened on 9/11, to treat it as a tragic anomaly, move on, live and let live.

Well, I can only speak for myself but I will never forget the day those towers went down, I will never forget the Boston Bombers and all the rest of the fanatics who strap on suicide vests and walk into crowds of families around the world.

I will never forget that there is a satanically inspired enemy out there that would like nothing better than seeing this nation on its knees.

I will never forget the bravery of the policemen and firemen in New York who ran toward the burning buildings, of Todd Beamer who - rather than seeing a plane brought down on top of thousands more innocent Americans – said, “Let’s roll,” and forced the downing of the plane to happen in a deserted area instead of a densely populated one.

I will never forget.

It just ain’t going to happen.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Never Never Never Forget
Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie Winston Churchill said never never never give up, I apply it to never forget 9/11 or Pearl Harbor or Benghazi. All unprovoked attacks on American citizens. It still sticks in my craw that the USA could elect a Muslim president a short 8 years after 9/11 and now we see Muslims in the House trashing our friends in Israel. If we see a socialist democrat (which everyone of them currently running is) the price that this country will pay will be far worse than 9/11. They are so rabid I predict that they will make an assassination attempt on President Trump before the next election as they realize how out of step they are with working Americans. Remember ever President assassinated except JFK was a republican,and one of the reasons the democrats assassinated him was that he was going after their beloved KKK. Yes Representative Ilhan Omar Somebody Did Do Something, and they were all Muslims, you can spin and re-spin but the truth does not change. My friends when the democrats come for your guns and freedom you can do something, yes, show them why we cling to our guns and bible.....nuff said God Bless Plowboy

It is a sad reminder each year of that day. I wasn’t born when the attacks on Pearl Harbor happened. I imagine if I was I would still feel the pain. Yet we have spent billions back on the nation responsible for that. Sad sad sad.

I'm coming to the dance on this one a little late. Charlie, when you and Travis were here in WA the concert you guys gave was very, very appreciated by vets and countrymen and women who are still serving in the military. Our family like many others were changed forever on 9/11/2001. I recieved the phone call just after the second tower came down that our reserve unit was being activated. For three months we patrolled the coast of WA State. Two years later we were in Iraq. The heroes are the ones who went to rescue those in the rubble of the towers who died or are now dieing from the aftermath, the passengers who took out the bast... on the plane and went down fighting in PA, and like Jeff Starr USMC on his 3rd tour in Iraq. Forget, allow evil to prevail, think not! Thank you for keeping the torch lit.

That day was the worst Birthday that I ever had, my 29th Birthday. I was on my way to work, listening to The Walton and Johnson show, and they announced what had happened in New York. Needless to say, I didn't get much work done that day. I mostly watched the TV at the used car dealership that I was working at. That was a heartless act of terrorism, I hope they burn in Hell for what they incurred on this Great Country. Since that day, I've vowed never to fly commercial. Anyways, its better to see this Great Country from the ground!
