9/11 isn’t about Islam.

It isn’t about 19 men who attacked and murdered 3,000 Americans.

It isn’t about speeches and platitudes and wreath laying and memorials.

9/11 certainly isn't about planting trees.

9/11 isn’t about taking the fight to the enemy.

9/11 isn’t about vengeance.

9/11 is about Americans. And America.

It’s about who we were. And how we had forgotten where we came from.

If our current leaders think we need to accept any blame for 9/11 then it is not in our relations with the Islamic world.

It is in how we had become complacent to the threats around us.

How we felt we no longer had an enemy who could do us real harm.

How we wanted so much to be liked, instead of respected. Instead of feared.

How we wanted so much to be liked we let our guard down.

And let the jackal in.

IF they want us to accept any blame than that is where it lies.

With our own leaders. Those charged with our security.

Including ourselves.

But 9/11 is about remembering the 3,000 dead.

Including those forty brave and terrified souls who remembered where they came from.

And knew, when they stuck their hand in the goo, what had to be done.

9/11 is about where we came from. And what we’ve become.

9/12 is about all the rest.

If we remember what 9/11 is about.

And Never Forget

Again

I hope peace prevails at the 9/12 Tea Party protests at the Capitol this morning, so that the message can get out.
