Seven Years On

Here it is the seventh anniversary and I find myself weeping whilst I watch some of the programming--and with my tears there is anger. Anger that the truth of that awful day has yet to come to light. Anger that all those people had to die. Anger that we don't know when someone in the government will decide that "Hey, it's time for ANOTHER 9/11. Gotta get people fired up again." Angry that religion is being used to visit death and destruction on innocents who had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11.

I am not a Christian, but if I were, I would be infuriated that a president who claims to be "born again" used lies and subterfuge to get the US into an ultimately immoral war. Unfortunately, the immorality of these people who CLAIM to be Christian are not makes real Christians look just as bad. I KNOW that these people are not Christian...but how many people who have no idea of what Christianity is all about will think..."Those are CHRISTIANS? I sure don't want to be one, then." I hope that Christians will start to distance themselves from these people! I'm embarrassed to be an American because of people like George W. Bush! I didn't feel that way before the Bush presidency, but I most certainly do now--and have since 9/11..

Hey, I am all for wars of national defense--but what danger is Iraq to us? Well, probably more of a danger than before we went in and invaded/occupied their counry. So it's only OK for the US to invade/occupy other countries? Didn't we condemn Hitler and the Japanese for this kind of thing? Why the hell is it OK for us to invade and occupy some little country because we want its oil (that, I believe, is the REAL reason for this war)?

I am more depressed and angrier than I was last year at this time. The lies go on and on and on. All they want to do is to talk about a memorial for the victims of 9/11. I am not happy that commercial buildings will be put up on the site, but that decision has already been made. A much better legacy and memorial to those people would be to find out the whole truth behind 9/11. Sure, put up a memorial...that is only right, but memorialise those who died by never giving up the fight for 9/11 Truth.

I wrote the above on the anniversary of 9/11. The anniversary always tends to be rough for me even though I didn't lose anyone in the attacks. What I DID lose, though, is a sense of trust in our government. Sure, I've disagreed with it about many things, but I never really thought that it would kill thousands of its own citizens. 9/11 was a brutal wake up call--one hell of a brutal wake-up call! BushCo can and will do whatever it feels is necessary to further its agenda.

I will keep fighting and state what I believe is the truth about 9/11: at the very least there was governmental negligence and at the worst, governmental collustion.

Thanks for posting this

I share your sentiments, even though I'm not an American.
