As of midnight tonight, we will reach the Five Year Anniversary of our country's worst attack. All of those who would like to bury their heads in the sand for the next 24 hours, be my guest and go to some other blog now.
Really. This is no place for you.
If you worship Allah, then perhaps this is not the place for you either. Or, on second thought, perhaps this is precisely where you ought to be.
If you are not an American, but feel our pain and outrage, you are more than welcome this day, friend!
As for the rest of us, whose lives (and politics?) changed forever on that fateful day, here is an amazing tribute that you really should watch - perhaps several times over. Make sure to be patient through the first several frames of text and quotes, because the photography that follows is heartbreaking, inspiring and will well remind you of why you have been changed, and why we have to continue to fight and ultimately crush Islamic Terrorism in our own time.
Turn up the volume. Experience your anger, frustration, pride and resolve once again. Then go kiss your family, break out your American Flag, raise a glass and give thanks that you are an American.
Finally, keep Our Troops in your thoughts tonight. Say a quiet prayer to God if you would like, or simply wish them well. They deserve our very best.
A Tribute to 9-11
Sincerely, Timmer of Righting America
