This might create some hard feelings I would imagine. However, I think this needs to be said. When will the mourning stop? We've been in mourning
for almost a decade since 9/11. At some point, I think we need to realize it was a tragic event in our history. At some point, we simply must move
We can't hold resentment against a religion because of the actions of a few radicals. I keep reading where the entire Muslim community must
apologize for the actions of a few. Why should they? Has Christianity apologized for their actions? How many people have died under the Divine
Right of Christians? How many alleged witches have been put to death because of Christianity? How many wars have been fought over Christianity? How
many slaves were captured and families destroyed under Christianity? Yet, I never heard one apology from all Christians for the atrocities that they
committed throughout history.
Most doctors will tell a person in mourning to pick themselves up and move on. There is an obvious grieving period but a decade is a little long to
grieve. It's unhealthy to grieve this much. Grief eventually turns into hate if you don't move on. Hate against Muslims, hate against illegals,
hate against the government, hate against gays, hate against anything and everything.
The total cost of lives lost is not 3000 folks! It's in the hundreds of thousands if we include the wounded and psychologically injured. We won't
stop until every single Muslim is dead. Because we are still in mourning and looking for blame. We don't want to look within ourselves to see if
our own actions had a hand in this. Everyone was riding the wave of greed and we got lax in security. Everyone was counting their money and we got
lax. Everyone was buying hummers and houses they couldn't afford and we got lax. Money was more important than security folks!
I think it's time we picked ourselves up and moved on with life. A quarter of my life has been in mourning because of 9/11. Bring the troops home,
protect our own interest at home, solidify our energy independence, and tell everyone else in the world to handle their own business from here own
out. Unless it TRULY affects our nation security. My heart goes out to the family and friends of those victims from 9/11. However, we can't keep
holding those souls hostage by invoking their names every time our exceptionalism is questioned by the world. Let the rest of the world eat cake for
all I care.
I just ask that we let those victims from 9/11 finally rest in peace. No more killing in their name folks! We can't win this thing. So let's stop
mourning and move on with life. Let's stop invoking their name in the disguise of national security. Let those people finally rest in peace please!
