Today, I Remember

Today is September 11. Today is the 10th anniversary of that horrible, terrorist attack on our great country.

Today is the day all of our lives changed. Today is the day we all remember.

Today, thousands of people love their lives. Today, thousands of people lost loved ones. Today is 9/11.

Today is the day we are most proud to be called Americans. Today is the day we most appreciate how lucky we are to be alive, and healthy; to love, and to be loved.

Today is the day we most cling to our loved ones, because we remember that horrible day, 10 years ago, that we could have lost it all.

On this day, 10 years ago, I was in my fourth grade class. I was in the middle of taking a math test and I remember hearing the class phone ring and my teacher walking to pick it up. I didn’t expect her to tap me on the shoulder and tell me my mother was there to pick me up. As I handed my teacher my test, and packed up my back pack, I remember thinking how odd it was for me to be leaving, not even an hour after I had gotten to school.

I walked to the front office and saw my mother with red, blotchy eyes. I was immediately worried, and asked what was wrong. When we got into the car she told me what had happened; there had been a terrorist attack on our country. People had hijacked an airplane and flown it into a tower in New York City. We were living in Chicago at the time, and everyone thought that we would be attacked next.

When we got home, we went to our neighbors house and watched the news there. I remember being incredibly aware of what was going on, even though I was so young. I saw the second plane fly into the second world tower. We all collapsed to the floor, hysterical, overcome with tears and emotion. I prayed like I had never prayed before.

It was incredibly surreal watching what was going on. I never imagined that I would live through a terrorist attack. I never imagined that I would live through a war. I never imagined that there were people out there who could do something so wretched, so vile, as hijacking a plane and crashing it into a building with thousands of people still in it.

That day, I saw a plane crash into the Twin Towers. I saw people jumping out of buildings, desperate. I saw people crying, blackened from the ash. I saw tears, heard screaming. I watched people run for their lives. I saw a tower fall, like it was nothing by a house of cards. I saw destruction. I saw pure evil. What I saw changed my life.

And yet, what I saw can’t even compare to what so many people had to experience first hand. All the first-responders. All the New Yorkers, who were in the city on that tragic day. All the people who lost loved ones. All the people in those towers. All the people who lost their lives. Flight 93. May God bless their souls.

I pray to God that I am half as brave as all of those heroes. I pray to God that I never forget what happened on this day 10 years ago. I pray to God for all those who lost loved ones, that they find peace in their hearts and hope and grace in God. I pray to God to help the people who committed such an act violence. “Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23: 34).

Today is the day I will Never Forget.

“Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It’s a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It’s also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend–even a friend whose name it never knew. “
– President George W. Bush

‎”You can be sure that the American spirit will prevail over this tragedy.”
– Colin Powell

‎”The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.”

Let’s Blame Bush Again!

Is Obama not grown-up enough to understand that he cannot blame Bush for all of his problems?

Oh so high and mighty President Barrack Obama has been blaming the previous administration for every single economic problem that has plagued our country.

So, now it’s getting on my nerves to the point where I am going to blog about it, so that everyone can know just exactly how I feel.

Here we go. As always I do have a article for you.

I don’t know what y’all think, but the title says it all for me. “Obama PLEADS for Patience on Economic Recovery.”

Patience, Obama?  Really? Honestly? You’re serious? Pah-lease.

Of course he is serious. The dude, excuse me, the Mr. Dude President expects us to 1) bow down before him like he is the savior, 2) believe all the lies that emit from the hole in his face, 3) trust that he is competent enough to run this GREAT country, and 4) wait around for him to do whatever he dern well pleases.

Uuuuummmmm, no thank you?

I am done pretending he is the greatest thing since sliced bread, I never believed one word he said, he isn’t even competent (don’t make me laugh) and I have never had enough patience to even look at his face much less for his policies.

You can only blame the previous admin. for so long. The guy on Fox and Friends this morning said 2 years you can blame the peeps before ya. I think that’s awfully lenient. I say MAYBE a year. And Obama is a year past the year of blame. Maybe he needs to become an adult (Let’s learn he rules of life Ob!) and take a little bit of responsibility for the economy. I mean, he is our president after all (and I say that loosely. He doesn’t act much like a president).

Obama is asking for patience because he realizes he has failed. I think this was his Hail Mary. “PEOPLE OF AMERICA! I know I have failed you but I am just SO fabulous that I expect a million do-overs. I need your patience because, let’s face it, I’m Barack Obama.” And then you hear crickets. And then you hear me in the back laughing my BUTT off, rolling on the floor, tears streaming down my face. I can just see the scene now… And then everyone else would start laughing. And Barack would get laughed off stage. Oh! Sweet dreams.

Ok sorry. Back to the article…. Got a little off topic there. 😛

A recession doesn’t fix itself over night… **Checks calendar.** It’s been two years since this recession began… I don’t know about you, but if two years is overnight for you, you have probably been in a coma and should see a doctor.

He goes on to blab about how we need to create more jobs. Now… this is where I really start to get aggravated because wasn’t the stimulus plan supposed to create jobs? How many of billions and trillions of dollars was that again? And how many jobs did we actually create? We created a few government jobs, a few private sector jobs, and then lost a few hundred thousand private sector jobs. Success? I think a resounding NO.

So maybe you can see why I’m not so patient with Obama anymore. He talks in circles, and this again, proves his hypocrisy. If only I was smart enough to start a list of his lies. Maybe I still will.

Yours,

Lucy
