Today we sadly remember a time before terrorism as I sit here is a cheap hotel room in the very same city I was in on that day ten years ago, I look around and see places that used to do business in this city and now are out of business, the grass on many of the cities public areas are not cut and are obviously not well maintained.
Trash is present on many of this cities streets and you can see that there are serious problems.
Prior to this event you could go on ebay and buy lots of stuff at a good price often half the cost of retail.
Now you can barely find a bargain at all and the cost to ship an item is ten times what it used to be.
Things have changed and they have not changed for the better, call your self a republican or a democrat either way nothing has changed this country has changed.
You can blame Bush or Obama it does not matter the truth is that they both failed us and let us not forget that Clinton was in charge prior to the cause of 911.
So it really does not matter who you blame, because we should be grown ups about this at least that is the way I was raised.
Here we are ten years later and I want you to ask yourself a question, are you better off now than you were in the year 2000?
They intended to strike America down on that day, they failed.
However they did cause a great deal of damage, to our way of life and our economy, that they did succeed to do partially because of the failure of our leaders that includes everyone, all the members of congress that have sold out America for money and corruption, (allegedly) are just as guilty as anyone for the mess we find ourselves in today.
I look around in this city of 300, 000 Americans and I see suffering, I see hunger, I see desperation.
What I do not see is relief, I see people who are scared, I see people who are like everyone else, so in that measure they did succeed to bringing us to their level.
Even with everything we have done to try and repair the damage, it has not been enough, we have a nation that thinks it can try the failed policies of yesterday and succeed only because they think they are smarter than those that came before them.
It is a sad consolation to realize that we could change if we only vote out of office any person that has been up there more than 10 years.
Get them out of there they are not helping they are hurting
When you see someone that says they will help the poor in this nation and you see what I see today, single parents staying in the cheapest motel in town to save money, and risking their lives to do so.
That my friends, is a sad thing and it should not be.
Today Fox news is replying footage of the 911 attacks, the same as they did for the last nine years.
I understand that and I am glad that they are reminding us of what we lost on that day ten years ago.
We lost so much of what we are, Americans, but we are not defeated.
Perhaps the devils that planned and created 911 were successful in this one battle but they have not won the war.
The idea that “Cant we all just get along” is just not going to work, apologizing for what we are is also not going to help.
We are what we are, and that has not changed since that day of the American revolution so many years ago when a few men met in a small room in secret.
They met and decided that they did not want to be governed, by the small minded they decided that all men are created equal, they made a document that has stood for hundreds of years, and yes, it is still sound even this very day, it applies because it is the result of the triumph of the human spirit.
We Are America and we are still Free.
You can never take that away, because it was paid at the highest cost, it was paid for in blood.
The blood of our fathers and the blood of our grandfathers, the blood of our neighbors and the blood of our loved ones.
The blood of Americans who have fought and sacrificed, everything since the beginning of our nation and all the wars that we have fought to remain free, yes we may have liberals that want to sell us out to other nations but they cannot sell what they do not own and that is our blood, we are America and we are free and you cannot take that away.
