Today marks the 16th anniversary of the falling of the World trade center towers, World trade center building 7, the downing of flight 93 in Pennsylvania and the hit on the pentagon. An interesting way, you might think, to describe events that have made an indelible imprint upon the minds and psyche of Americans, and I would guess, people worldwide.
Today will be marked with comments from the 45th president, survivors of that day in 2001, as well as those who doubt its authenticity. In the 8 months since tRump took the office of US President, our nation has become even more polarized along, racial, economic and political lines. It will be interesting to see, over the next 24 hours, what today’s remembrance will create.
For me, who has a long history of questioning authority and having doubts about the truths that are promulgated towards “We the People”, in order to form a more perfect mindset of blind allegiance, I will again ask people, “is it possible?”
Is it possible that 19 people, armed only with box cutters, could overpower army-trained pilots? Could they fly commercial aircraft in ways that confound even the best-trained military pilots? Could 2 buildings that were engineered and built to withstand the impacts of 747 aircraft, really be brought down by burning jet fuel and office furniture?
Is it possible, that we have not been told the truth, the whole truth, so help them God?
As we mourn the lives that were taken on that day, let us honor them by demanding that the truth be finally told. Oh right, with 45 in office, the truth is not something that he, nor his administration, is familiar with.
Afghanistan. Iraq. Yemen. Libya. Sudan. North Korea…..next?
