In Memory…of Nine-Eleven

  • Guests listen to the calling of names during a Memorial Service and dedication of the Pentagon memorial.         AP

“A memorial can never replace what a family has lost, …but may you find peace here.”

President George W. Bush

“Sept. 11 Marked With Moment of Silence Lead by President, Other Ceremonies”;

“President Bush led a moment of silence at the White House Thursday and other ceremonies were taking place in New York and Pennsylvania in honor of the 3,000 people who died Sept. 11, 2001, in the worst terrorist attack on American soil.”;

The Pentagon monument consists of 184 benches, one for each victim, that overlook small reflecting pools. The Defense Department’s headquarters were struck about an hour after the attacks in New York.

May every family be comforted. May our land be safe.

    I wasn’t referring to you Shirley I was making a generalist reffereance to the sorts of peopole who make comments such as the one blockquoted by me above.

    You still haven’t answered my question as to how the death of at least close to 1/2 a million civillians isn’t equalkly as evil as the death of the 3000 on Sept 11 2001?

    Was Jesus kidding about not repaying evil with evil? (that too is after all in the bible…more so than referneces to homosexuality). If he wasn’t kiding and the US believes itself to be under the lordship of Jesus, then why is it engaging in the evil of this war?

  2. Greg, I hate war…probably as much as you or anyone else.

    I suppose you are addressing me when you speak of “railing against homosexuality.” I do speak against homosexuality because I believe it not in the best interest of our society, contrary to nature, and taught against in the Bible.

    I have spoken concerning respect for our flag, and really have no thought that should be offensive.

    War is terrible, and I don’t believe any of our leaders love to have us involved in war. I believe it to be well acknowledged that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the deaths of close to a million people, and I understand that most citizens of Iraq feel they are better off without him.

    It was a tribunal of Iraqi people who sentenced him to death.

    I agree with you that war is horrific and the death of innocent people is terrible. Wish we lived in a peaceful world…but alas that will never be here on this earth.

    Wish you well, Greg.

    Wikipaedia (just google civillian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan to check my sources) cites a study that attributes 31% of 426369 deaths to coallition forces – that’s 44 times as many deaths as in the attacks on America on September 11, 2001. Why do you not shout in anger at those figures? Where si your moral outrage at those deaths? Do not claim to be blessed by God because of an attack that has inspired your leaders to produce more death and misery than ever was experienced in Iraq under Saddam hussein.

    Do not repay evil with evil…or was Jesus just kidding about that?

    You rail against homosexuality but no the death of other people? You get disgusted by some discarded fabric at a political convention but not the death of innocent children caused by your leaders – Why? Why?

    This only proofs to me that we are one nation under God and that we have Gods favor.

    Sorry you’ve lost me there – how does trhe attack on the WTC and the Pentagon prove this to you?

    How is that you (quite rightly) mourn the loss of those 3000 and are angered (again, quite rightly) by the evil that planned and excecuted the attack and yet it seems that the greater majority of this blogs readers support the ‘war’ in Iraq and Afghanistan where sice it began around 229 times the number of people have been killed than in the September 11 attacks.

    Where’s your anger at that, where is your indignation at your politicians who plan and send your soldiers to excecute these atacks?

  6. 7 years went fast, for us… For those who lost loved ones and friends, how does it feel? My heart goes out to them. The survivors and all that worked there after this horrendous day are in my thought also.
    May God comfort and strengthen all.

    It was a sad day and still is, this I will never forget.
    My heart goes out to every person that lost a love one on this day seven years ago.

    If the world forgets this, there is a problem. This shall never be forgotten and should always remember how good we have it here in the U.S.A.
    It still sad to have innocent people getting attacked. This only proofs to me that we are one nation under God and that we have Gods favor.
    Remember evil does not win, good will!!!!!
    Many blessings to everyone and bless our leader President Bush have God guide his way in every decisions he makes now and forever.
