9/11 “Day of Service”

This is something I truly don’t understand. The president calls 9/11 a “Day of Service” and I’ve seen others call it a “Day of Hope.” The president calls on people to go out and volunteer, to serve their community which is great and all, but what does that have to do with 9/11? What does working at a soup kitchen or picking up trash have to do with the terrorist attacks that killed three thousand of our fellow Americans? The same goes for this “Day of Hope” nonsense.  Hope? Hope for what? What the hell does hope have to do with 9/11? Hope it didn’t happen? That’s wishful thinking because we can’t change the past.

Liberals are trying to steal what 9/11 really is: a day of remembrance. 9/11 will always be that. It is a day to remember that our nation was attacked. It is a day to remember all those who died in the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and in a Pennsylvania field. It is a day to remember the rescue workers who ran into those buildings in the hopes that they could save the lives of those trapped by the fires. And it is a day to remember the free men and women who decided do what free men and women do and fought back against the terrorists. We can remember the selfless service of all those who died trying to save lives that day, but that does not make that solemn day a “Day of Service.” It is “Day of Remembrance” because what we need to do that day, and each and every day, is remember what happened that day and to make sure it never happens again.
