A Prepper’s Tribute to 9/11

9-11 femaOn the tenth anniversary of 9/11, our nation and much of the free world remembers and mourns the horrific events of that day.  Along with commemorating the victims and the many people that suffered on that tragic day, many of us are sorting through our thoughts, however mixed.  It is now ten years later and we have the perspective that comes with time and with the awareness of the changes in our daily lives that were the outcome of this tragedy.

Regardless of how we feel about our nation, let us make today one of reflection and remembrance.  And although our world seems no safer now than it was then, on September 11 we need to put our political and bureaucratic angst aside and quietly honor those that have died or suffered as a result of September 11, 2001.

Times are tough today and the future is uncertain.  But our nation is still free and tolerance is still the rule of the land.

God Bless America and its People.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

  1. Gaye, I’m not very tolerant of Islam. I’ve seen a lot of it, up close, overseas and I didn’t see anything I liked. I have a suspicion that being too tolerant of Moslem culture expanding in this country is very much a parallel to Native Americans being too tolerant of White culture expanding in their time. It didn’t work out very well for them. The European experience with embracing multiculturalism certainly hasn’t worked out too well for them. I can get along with almost anyone but Oct 23, 1983 gave me a perspective on Islam that makes that very difficult in that particular case.

    • For those that do not remember (or know), here is what happened on October 23, 1983:

      “The Beirut barracks bombing (October 23, 1983 in Beirut, Lebanon) occurred during the Lebanese Civil War, when two truck bombs struck separate buildings housing United States and French military forces—members of the Multinational Force in Lebanon—killing 299 American and French servicemen. The organization Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the bombing.”

      Thank you for your feedback, Arsenius. Tolerance is not a black and white word – it comes in many shades of gray.

    • You are a very tactful Lady. A quality rare today and all the more valued because of it.

  2. Hi Gaye
    I think we should add the 500,000 to one million innocent people killed in Iraq and Afghanistan to our list of 9/11 victims.

  3. Gaye, I remember them everyday. It has molded my life into its current state. It is partially to blame for me becoming a prepper. Funny how things work huh?
