We Will Never Forget!

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 T.V.
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?

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!

Thanks Dinah, your recollection of your December 2001 trip to "the site" was awesome.

I remember the dread I felt that day.

If you'd shown me these last seven years - on September 12th 2001 - I would first have been shocked... And would have then proclaimed President Bush an incredible success.

He and his policies have kept us safe.

Some day history will remember that.
