9/11 Never forget
I went to bed grief-stricken last night, after searching YouTube for items to share and listening to a few 911 audio tapes of the individuals trapped in the World Trade Center coming to the realization that they were going to die.
I feel we've been robbed of the grieving process. Our Tired Old Media can take the small things and make them big and take the big things and make them small. Do you think 10 years after Pearl Harbor we were pushing diversity and Let's All Get Along - especially as terrorist attacks on our soil have continued even as the propaganda machine has continued to play them down too?
I love diversity. As a Montessori teacher, I was trained to introduce kids to other cultures from the earliest years - and to teach respect for other ways of life. But Islamic extremism leads to death for those committed to freedom. That's the truth we should be teaching our children. We have enemies, not because we want them but because evil does exist in the world and we can see it. Wise people will do their best to defend and protect our way of life, not to deny that it is at risk.

All I can add is AMEN! We are losing the America we love to diversity. We need to keep teaching that evil does indeed exist in the world, that we are in a battle, and that there is no middle ground.
