So, here it is, September 11. It is six years after the tragedy. What is there to say? Quite a lot, yet words are not sufficient. Remember the kids dancing in the streets of Afghanistan after it happened? I think of that whenever I think of this day. I don´t hate them but I can´t believe people could be so happy about millions of tears and aching hearts. How could you be happy about lives that are destroyed? For the difficulties survivors will have for their entire lives? For the families that may never truly be happy again? How can people be so brainwashed?
I can tell you that there are almost no Canadians, Americans or British that are rejoicing about the lives that are being lost on either side of the war. We are not happy about the deaths of anybody. It is tragic.
I think that the brave people that were involved in the rescue are examples of greatness in the world. The people fighting for our freedom (with few exceptions) are also incredible and we owe them so much.
You know that this event has changed us forever because the phrase "Septmeber 11" no longer means a day that occurs in the middle of the ninth month each year. It now represents the worst kind of evil imaginable. No one should be happy about that. Submitted 9/13/2007 12:20:38 AM | Author: Mike Martonfi
