What a difference 19 years can make. On September 11th, 2001, 19 Islamic Jihadists, successfully commandeered four commercial aircraft and managed to attack two American notable targets, the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. The terrorists on the fourth aircraft, were overcome by Flight 93’s courageous passengers, who knew they were dead, but instead chose to die fighting rather than cower like cowards. That aircraft crashed in Pennsylvania, never reaching its intended target, the Capitol building.
On that fateful day, sixty police officers died as they attempted to save the lives of innocent Americans. Sixty families lost fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, uncles, cousins, as these bravest ran into the unstable structures. They ran to danger not away! Back then, NOT one American would have taken a knee, burned a flag, desecrate a monument, call to defund the police or even less, attack, or so much as disrespect, a police officer.
Today, youngsters that were not even alive in 2001, or were too young to remember what happened in 9/11, are rioting in our streets, destroying private property, looting and attacking the police. Even the conman and opportunist, Colin Kaepernic, was 13 years old back on September 11th, 2001. Yes, how far we have fallen indeed.
