Have You Forgotten?

Please take a moment today and remember our military, the men and women in uniform, fighting a barbaric enemy unlike any we've ever known. Support those who make it possible for US to live free.

I hear people sayin' we don't need this war,

I say there's some things worth fightin' for.

What about our freedom, and this piece of ground?
We didn't get to keep 'em by backin' down.
They say we don't realize the mess we're gettin' in, before you start your preachin' let me ask you this my friend,
Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten, how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire,
And her people blown away,

Have you forgotten, when those towers fell.
We had neighbors still inside goin' through a livin' hell.
And you say we shouldn't worry 'bout Bin Laden,
Have you forgotten?

They took all the footage off my TV, said it's too disturbing for you and me.
It'll just breed anger that's what the experts say, If it was up to me I'd show it everyday.
Some say this country's just out looking for a fight, after 9/11 man I'd have to say that's right!

Have you forgotten all the people killed?
Some went down like hero's in that Pennsylvania field,
Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
All the loved ones that we lost and those left to carry on, don't you tell me not to worry 'bout bin Laden.
Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten how it felt that day?

To see your homeland under fire, and her people blown away, have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell, and you say we shouldn't worry 'bout bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

The comments I posted are actually lyrics to a song by Darryl Worley , written after that fateful day when this great nation would forever be changed. My 9/11 post was going to be a recounting of my morning, a look back at where I was and what I was doing. In retrospect, what I was doing didn't matter. But I think this post says it all.
May God continue to Bless this country and
Let Us Never Forget!
