    I know quite a few of us know about this already. This is not so much about politics, as it is about average American citizens uniting. I just thought I would post this for those that might not have heard of it yet, but would be interested. Also, I'm curious, how many of us are there on this forum??

    I pray we never forget.

    That we call them what they were, TERRORISTS!

    And I pray that we are vigilant.

    Bless you I think we all need to get back to the way we were on 9/11. Not freaked out, but powerful, united, and standing tall. [​IMG]

    I find it ironic that the website states it's not about "Blue vs. Red" states, and then I see a "Joe Biden Gaffes!" "Pelosi knows something!" "Obama messed up!" ... I have a hard time buying into the 'bi-partisan'-ness of this site and/or movement.

    The thing to going back to the way we were on 9/12 is to capture the sense of unity without the sense of hatred.

    As I recall we did some wonderful things that day, but some Americans took it upon themselves to murder innocent people because they "looked" like the bad guys. Who, by the way were not Iraqis.

    Can we try to do ourselves one better? Be united without being xenophobic?

    Be kind and sharing without having to hate anybody to do it?


    That I would like to see.

    Personally, Glenn Beck scares me. He is so skilled at creating a vague sense of fear in people about some unknown "them" that allows people to project their own fear and hatred onto whomever they want and say that Glenn Beck knows the same truth they do......

    I fully agree.. We need a world were we ALL can be proud, strong and United... Scare tactics and bashing 9/11 families is not what I consider American Values..​

    As someone who lost a family member at the WTC on 9/11, I always try to remember how I felt.

    I don't give a hoot about the politics of it all. I just remember how my heart hurt not only for my family but for all Americans that day.
