September 11, 2001 had a dramatic impact on all of America.
I recall that morning as I was at work and my boss called to tell me that an airliner full of people had accidentally crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. While he was describing what happened, he suddenly gasped and told me that a second airliner crashed into the other tower. It was then that it became apparent that it was a deliberate act of terrorism and not an accident.
We had a TV at work and we turned it on to the news and watched as the fires ravaged the towers. Then horror struck when the first of the towers collapsed. A short time later we all watched as the second tower came down.
In the aftermath, national patriotism surged to a level not seen since the end of World War II. Americans were flying their flags and wearing patriotic clothing. Recording artists like Lee Greenwood had hit songs like, God Bless the USA.
But things can drastically change in ten years.
Today, I see fewer and fewer flags flying on houses. Rarely do I see anyone wearing patriotic clothing and I don’t remember when I heard a newly released patriotic song.
What’s the difference?
Ten years ago, we were attack by foreign terrorists. Today, we are being attacked by domestic terrorists, starting with the one in the White House.
Many Americans feel that there is nothing left to America to be proud of. Our nation has lost its status as the most powerful and wealthiest nation in the world. The economy is in shambles and the Constitution is being shredded by the President, Democratic Congress and liberal judges.
The America that existed ten years ago is gone. It’s been replaced with an America that is no longer a nation of the people.
In order to get back the America from ten years ago, we need to replace the President, liberal Congress and judges with men and women who love the country and will return it to what it use to be.
