Seven Years Later How Do You Feel?

There are two words that can describe how I feel about the 7th anniversary of 9-11.

There are two words that can describe how I feel about the 7th anniversary of 9-11.  Sadness and anger.

I am sad for the families who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001 and must relive that awful day over and over again.  There are some of those families right here in eastern Carolina.  I am also sad for those families who have been impacted since 9-11 with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. 

My sadness turns to anger when I think that, as far as we know, Osama Bin Laden is still out there. 

I sincerely hope that feeling of anger is replaced oneday with a sense of justice.  The sadness part I don't think will ever go away.  The families who have lost loved ones on 9-11, and because of it,  will always remain in my thoughts and prayers.

    It still hurts to see the images of that day. I changed that day as many American did. The difference is I did not forget the reason why we fight. However I would have never met my husband if 9/11 didn't happen. It caused me look at my life, start going to church (where I met him. Now we have precious little girl. To anyone who lost someone in 9/11, my prayers and thoughts are still with you.

    I think people have very short memories, I remember that day and how sad eveyone was, and then turning into anger and everyone wanting justice and even some wanting pay back, seven years later that was the wrong thing to do. Our sons and daughters have gone over there to do what was asked and expected of them only to hear negitive things said about their efforts. Why cant someone report on the great things that they have achived I.e little girls are able to go to school for the first time, women have rights they have never had before, people have lights and water for the first time in their lives there are three times as many schools in that country than there was when we went over there. People forget to quickly about that day go ask someone who has lost their son, daughter, husband, wife or father that day if they have forgotten.

    We will always be exposed to a potential threat whether Osama Bin Laden is dead or not. Would it be good to be certain of his death? Yes. But as long as radical Islam exists, there will be a threat. They think it is their destiny to rule the world and the rest of us should be eliminated. Ignore that fact and eventually it will come to pass. As long as radical Islam exists, there will always be another Osama to take the place of the one before. To those who think that if we brought all of our troops home from around the world, that everyone would like us again and we would be left alone, you are living in some disconnected form of reality. The only JUSTICE that can come from this is to eliminate the threat wholesale. Until we are willing to do that, there will be more threats and we will fall victim to another scenario again. Discount my opinion as radical if you want to....but I am right. Without confronting evil head on it will only flourish.

    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."- Reichsmarshall Hermann Goering in 1946 at the Nurnburg War Crimes Trials. I can't think of a more appropriate quote for this day.
