September 11th~Ten Years After
9/11 approaching 10 years....
The conditions are in stark contrast to that day nearly 10 years ago, September 11, 2001, when the world changed. On that day, both here in western Ohio and the east coast of the United States, dawned almost cloudless, with 70 and 80 degree temperatures under those bright blue skies.
Where were you on 9/11/01?
In those days I didn't blog or still know much about the Internet, but I did keep a written diary...for some reason that day I didn't write anything, but did make note the next day, Wednesday September 12th....stating simply :
"Arab Terrorists Bomb World Trade Center with Hijacked Planes...
Pentagon hit as well...KAOS!"
Naive and simple to be sure...by Thursday the 13th I would pen "Looks like upwards of 20,000 dead--Rescue efforts continue...Still not sure what our response is going to be-----"
By the end of the week we all knew the death toll, while horrific, was not going to approach the 20 thousand mark, or even the 5,000 that I was writing about in my daily diary on the following Monday September 17th....the days and weeks ahead would bring the war in Iraq, and bombing in Afghanistan....it would also bring our "Americans Unite" mode to an end.
Yes, 10 years after the attack on America, we are still fighting wars against terrorism and radical Islam...but the greatest threat to the American Republic is the American Left and the American Press. They continue to claim that the attacks were an "inside job" and that 90% of Muslims want to live in peace....I say Bullshit! You might want to reverse that 90%...I've yet to meet even a handful of the worshipers of Allah that will condemn the 9/11 attacks. And I've never met a left wing nut that will condemn them either...they are either too PC, to batshit crazy, or just plain Chicken Shit to say what they really believe, or to simply tell the truth.
Those are my thoughts and remembrances of 9/11/01.....the war against radical Islamics continues, the war between right and left is going full throttle as well.
Photos-I saved two complete newspapers of that day....the September 11, 2001, local paper, The Celina Daily Standard, and the USA Today from the next morning September 12, 2001. The 3rd page headline "Unite" was a fools gold wish, it didn't last.
