Today is Patriot Day.
Not many Americans know it.
It is because of an act of congress right after the vicious terrorist attacks on the United States on this day six years ago. It is to remember the events of that horrible day in which 19 terrorists showed how they could change a nation in a matter of hours and awaken a sleeping giant.
And, the sad part is how soon people WANT to forget the fateful day six years ago.
New York City "independent" mayor, Michael Bloomberg was trying to prevent the ceremony from taking place at the former World Trade Center site that has taken place the previous five years. Mr. Bloomberg cited the construction going on there. But, thankfully, many of those who wanted to have the ceremony took over the mayor's head and it has already occurred, as it should.
Too many people are now using the old moral equivalence that permeated during the Cold War with the Soviet Union. If you forget, the left tried to downplay any of the evil of the Soviet's by trying to equalize what the United States was doing. Fortunately, Ronald Reagan put a stop to that and defeated the Soviet Union on the basis that the United States was something special and history has proven that correct.
Now, we are not even bothering to teach our young people what happened and if there is anything, it is in "context", so what that means is that somehow the United States will be made to be the bad guy and those in al-Queda and their allies are the good guys.
Then, what is the point of Patriot Day?
It will be up to people like us to remind the American people what happened on that fateful September morn six years ago. It is up to us to tell the story as to why we are fighting those who will stop at nothing to destroy our way of life and liberty and replace it with a repugnant form of Islam that is demeaning and degrading.
Today is Patriot Day. Please remind those who want to forget we can not forget and make victory in the War Against Islamofacsist Terror.
