12 Years

September 11, 2001- a date that should be remembered by Americans but seems to be getting pushed to the background. 12 years ago today I was getting Pacey and myself ready to head to his one year check-up. One phone call from my mom and I became very distracted the rest of the day. I even locked my keys in the car at the doctor's office with Pacey still in the car. An awesome cop came popped open the doors and told me he understood how I could be so distracted.

Today, 12 years later, I am sitting on the couch writing this after watching Pacey get on a bus and head to school. And I can tell from Facebook who remembers 9/11 for what it is.

Did you know that today in Washington, DC, there is a group of Muslims marching on the capitol? They were given a permit and the majority of them will readily admit that they support the very people who attacked us this day 12 years ago. And did you know that a group of American patriots were denied a permit to march on Washington today because they are extremist? It makes me mad that this administration views Americans that way.

We have forgotten what happened that day. We have forgotten the sense of patriotism and passion for God that came from that day. Our government is so corrupt that proud American citizens are viewed as the enemy while terrorist are to be petted and given into. Our country is forgetting what it means to be an American.

America has always stood for freedom and pride. Yet, the administration in place now is trying to take that away. And we are letting them as a majority. Yes we sit here and we say on Facebook that we are against this and that but are we really doing anything about it? Are you letting the people who are on YOUR payroll in the state houses and in Washington know that you don't like what they are doing and what you want? Because guess what they are YOUR employee. They want you to forget that. They want you to think that they are employed by someone else but they aren't. Get on the phone, break out the paper and pen, shoot them an email. Tell them how you feel. And if they continue to fall down on their job FIRE them. We have elections coming up for some of these people. Fire them and hire someone new. That's what we need. A clean up in Washington, DC. We need to put people up there who remember what happened to this country 12 years ago and who remember what our country actually stands for and what the constitution says.  

Where were you 12 years ago?
