Tomorrow, our nation will mark the 6th anniversary of the horrendous event when 19 young Arabs hijacked four airliners and commenced flying them into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, The Pentagon in Washington D.C. and the fourth was headed for the Capitol building or the White House, when passengers took command and overpowered the remaining hijackers and the plane went down in Shanksville, PA.
9/11/2001--"a day (to paraphrase President Franklin Roosevelt) that will live in infamy". It is interesting to read the various theories of what happened; conspiracies of secret cabals, explosives that were pre-positioned in the W.T. C. to detonate after the planes struck to collapse the towers.
They are saying some of the same things they said about Roosevelt, leading up to Pearl Harbor, that he and certain government agents knew in advance that the Japanese were going to bomb Pearl Harbor, but wanted an excuse to declare war against Japan and Germany. And now, some are accusing the government of having foreknowledge of 9/11, but wanted the mighty war machine of the the World's greatest superpower to declare a "War on Terror.

It would be unthinkable and treasonous for any Government leader to knowingly allow something such as this to happen and destroy so many lives. Personally, I don't believe it!
Taking the facts as we know them to be, these radical Islamics awakened a sleeping nation and sorely underestimated the will of the American people to challenge this bunch of cowards, hiding behind religion to kill and maim innocent men, women and children.
I remember the rage, the tears, the horror and the patriotism that swelled in my heart when our President, George W Bush, stood on the rubble of the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York and declared, "Those who destroyed these buildings will hear from us..." I remember that the nation rallied behind our President as we prepared for war. Young men stood in line to volunteer to be a part of those who would fight.
Since those fateful days, much has happened: Not only a war in Afghanistan, but also Iraq. Thankfully, to this date, there has not been another attack on American soil. But I am disturbed at the political leadership of our nation who now use this war as a "political football." I am deeply concerned that we (as a nation) might be forgetting why we are in this struggle. It is not against a nation, it is an idealogical war. Two civilizations fighting for supremacy!
May God Bless America and cause us to turn our hearts toward the true and living God! Let us join our hearts in prayer for our nation. If we don't, a worse fate could await us in the not so distant future. One nuclear device, set off in a major city, that could kill a million people. Unthinkable?" Yes, but is it possible? I pray not.
God Bless America!
