On 11 September 2007
On the 6th anniversary of September 11 I've found myself thinking about two things.
The first... have we as a nation forgotten who the enemy is and what they're capable of?
The second... have we forgotten what happened the last time we as a nation were so divided.
Here is a little reminder, with some help from Abraham Lincoln.
"A house divided against itself cannot stand." "I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free (to terrorism). I do not expect the Union to be dissolved - I do not expect the house to fall - but I do expect it will cease to be divided.
It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery (terrorism) will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new - North as well as South."

Some of us haven't forgotten, but I fear many have.
God Bless America.
Americans have not forgotten and will always fight for what is right.....as long as the war can be won within a month....and it can be won with a few smart bombs.....and no ground troops need to go.....and no Americans are killed.....and the war goes exactly as we have planned.....and every other country is on our side.....otherwise don't bother because when has hard work and perseverance ever accomplished anything other than fatigue?
EC, I won't forget, nor will I let anyone around me! Tumbleweed, you're exactly right. I continue to be embarrassed for and ashamed of a goodly portion of our citizens...and the MAJORITY of our legislators. What horrid examples! They don't recognize honor and integrity when they're staring them in the face!
Feelin' a little CRANKY today!
