Thoughts in remembrance of 911

<< < (4/14) > >>

@Steeladept- just for the record, I was not equating anything with anything. If you'll take a moment to look at what I wrote - and read what I actually said - and what I said it about -  you should be able to see that.  :)

And on that note, I'll heed Mouser's advice and let this be my last word on this topic.  8)

SpoilerYou are quite correct. What is odd is that nobody ever mentions them either.

"The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers." Turkish Prime Minister Erdo─čan, quoting from an Islamic poem.

And I seem to recall this from a very popular Christian hymn:

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
   with the cross of Jesus going on before.
   Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
   forward into battle see his banners go!

I don't know about the original reference, but I do know that this is being taken out of context.  It's not meant literally, but in terms of spiritual combat.

I remember 9/11.  The memory brings a lot of emotions.

Mostly sadness.

I would like to thank steeladept for his tactful refrain. It affords me the chance to simply agree, and move on.

My son was at the Pentagon that day.
