We had just returned from China three days before.  I had taken the day off work to recover from jet lag.  When I checked the internet for the morning’s news, the terrorist attacks were underway.  The pictures of the people who were above the impact point and who were forced to jump to their deaths or be burned alive… those still get to me in a big way.  It’s not really possible for human beings to forget something like this, nor is it possible to forget that the men who committed this crime did it in the name of Allah.  What, then, do we make of those Americans who apparently can forget it, who are eager to deny that this horrific deed had anything to do with Islam, who indeed are ready to blame America or, inexplicably, Israel?  Your children should not view the following video.  But you should.

    We remind them. Over and over and over again. We remind them that Islam extremists have carried out over 16,000 attacks since 9/11. We remind them what the Qur’an actually says about non-Muslims and the aim of Islam: domination.

    If you could get Luke to set up your blog so individual articles could be extracted and e-mailed to those on one’s contacts lists you might increase your readership just as Michelle Malkin has as evidenced by Phil’s sending one of hers to me which I then I sent to you and many others.

    I remember that horrible, horrible event! I was at work and was told about it and watched the events unfold with co-workers. It was so surreal I could hardly believe what I was seeing on TV. I thought any moment I’d wake up and it would have all been a very bad dream. I remember thinking for a moment that it may have been the last day and the end had come. I also remember, coming home early to my young family and hugging my children while trying to explain what had happened…still in shock and disbelief. How on earth could I ever explain such evil to young minds? I pray I never see another day like that in the US nor any part of the world. Yet, I suspect unless something is done to stop radical Islam and all terrorism, it will continue.

    So, I agree with Amy…we remind those who have forgotten. We keep the images alive in their heads about the horrific events of that day and the pain and suffering it caused many. We avoid romanticizing it and the temptation to join hands and sing “We are the world” and think this is all one be happy world family. Most of all we live as Christians, set an example and pray God’s sovereign hand moves in this situation.
