Do you remember?It was shortly after 8am on a beautiful Tuesday morning. I had just returned from taking my youngest daughter to the sitter. The t.v. was on providing a live view
of the World Trade Center. Initial reports were that a small plane had possibly crashed into the North Tower.
8:46am Mohammed Atta and the other hijackers aboard American Airlines Flight 11 crash the plane into floors 93-99 of the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
9:03 am – Hijackers crash United Airlines Flight 175 into floors 75-85 of the World Trade Center’s South Tower
9:37 am – Hijackers aboard Flight 77 crash the plane into the western façade of the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., killing 59 aboard the plane and 125 military and civilian personnel inside the building.
10:07 am – After passengers and crew members aboard the hijacked Flight 93 contact friends and family and learn about the attacks in New York and Washington, they mount an attempt to retake the plane. In response, hijackers deliberately crash the plane into a field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania,
In less than two hours the world as we know it changed forever.
And the world is much more dangerous than we could have imagined it would ever be on that Tuesday in September fourteen years ago. The Middle East is in turmoil. Today September 10th our president with the help of Republican leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner , John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker, and others, ensured that the leading sponsor of terrorism in the world would not only eventually produce a nuclear weapon, but would have the cash to do it. The terms of this deal will release $150,000,000,000 to the leading sponsor of terrorism in the world. It is so bad the Democrats would not even allow a vote on the Republican resolution disapproving the Iran treaty. They did not want their names recorded by history or by record.
I pray that in the days ahead the American people will wake up. There is potential for events in the days ahead that would far overshadow the tragedy of September 11th 2001.
God help America
