justice was served…but the memory lives on
As 9/11 fast approaches, it behooves us to remember the severity of Osama bin Laden’s attack against the United States.
National Geographic documented the steps leading up to the massacre in mind-numbing detail, as does the following video shot by private citizens with a bird’s eye view of the catastrophy.
For more than a year the four Al Quaeda Jihadists who learned to fly the jumbo jets lived among us…breathing our air, walking our sidewalks, driving our roads. They shopped, ate, and slept…only steps away from us. While they worked at their horrific mission, we went about our own business…working as usual.
Thousands of American lives were lost on 9/11. Families were forever torn apart. Children, even newborns, lived on without parents. Gaping holes were left in all our hearts. Not to mention the one in NYC…a tangible reminder of our country’s vulnerability to enemies intent upon our destruction…at any price.
President George W. Bush retaliated by taking us to war against Saddam Hossein. The dictator eventually met his maker, Allah. The cost to the American taxpayer?
We’re still paying it off.
And the man who admitted to masterminding and financing 9/11?
Osama bin Laden was silenced forever by President Obama in April of 2011.
No war…no astronomical price tag…
…just good, ole-american know-how…and guts!!!
