Fourteen years ago today, America was attacked. This wasn’t a declaration of war from a recognized nation, nonetheless, this was an attack. 3,000 Americans – our neighbors, brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers – lost their lives on that terrible day. It is only proper and fitting that we take a moment out of our busy lives to remember what America suffered.
Wise men say that those who do not remember history are condemned to repeat it. So stand with me today as “We The People” stand united in remembrance of the horrific tragedy that was 9-11.
Also, I believe it is fitting that we express gratitude to this nation’s first responders. Everyday, police, firefighters, and soldiers place their lives in harm’s way to keep us safe and to rescue us from danger. So, if you see a police officer or a firefighter or a soldier, take a moment to say thank-you. If not for them, your life would be just a little less secure.
Every president wants to leave a permanent and lasting impression. Something that will be remembered for generations and be taught in history class.
Most presidents have succeeded in creating a positive legacy. Reagan will be remembered for ending the Cold War. Kennedy for space exploration. Lincoln for keeping a nation united through great trial.
Others have a somewhat less than positive legacy. Carter will be remembered for the hostage crisis. Nixon will forever be the “crook.” Clinton will always be the guy that lied to Congress and got articles of impeachment brought against him.
But what will Obama’s legacy be?
I came cross this image that sums up, in a nut shell, the Obama Legacy.
The phrase, “I brought a once great nation to its knees,” when used to describe what this President has done to America is genuinely sad.
American voters need to wake up! Stop taking life in the United States for grated. Pay attention to what you representatives are doing and don’t just accept their lies as “business as usual.”
It’s time to put an end to “business as usual” and get back to the business of making this once great nation great once again.
