A few random thoughts that I don’t have the time — or perhaps desire — to blog more fully about.
It’s shameful the way the media has turned 9/11 into a day that requires viewers/listeners to relive every moment of 9/11/01. What’s even more shameful is the way advertisers are selling during this media circus. I’m not the only one who feels this way. There must be a better way to honor the people who died that day.
Not everyone who died on 9/11/01 was a “hero.” Some were victims. Think about it.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The terrorists have won. They have changed our lifestyle, forced our government to take away many of our civil liberties (i.e., freedoms), and caused us to start costly wars that we simply cannot win. The only way we can defeat them is to restore our freedoms, abandon efforts in the Middle East, and protect our country from within, using smart intelligence tactics. Sadly, I don’t think we’re capable, as a people, of doing any of that.
