Leprechaun here folks~

I’ve found myself on detached field duty as well it seems. I got a call very late Sunday evening asking me to come and speak to a bunch of Military Prep School kids about September 11th and my personal experiences. Seems a few of the kids had expressed some sentiments that indicated they felt dubious about the import and significance of remembering the tragedy. Apparently nobody at the school thought they knew anyone who was involved with or even remotely connected to the terrorist attacks.  I’m spending my day speaking to the 4 different classes relating my experiences, both personal and military regarding the incident and the aftermath.

RELAX there will still be an issue tomorrow, I had it mostly in the can before I left for my 6 hour road trip thru the hell that is incessant highway construction in Texas. I decided as I’m sitting here in the “Instructor’s Lounge” to post this impromptu remembrance since Impish did not remark upon the upcoming event and though I do tomorrow, that’s in the past tense and since I was once again vividly reliving the day it suddenly didn’t feel like enough.

Remembering 9/11

In the aftermath of the devastation of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, we swore as a nation that we would never forget. We would never forget the names of the victims.

They were husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. They were firefighters and police officers – heroes in the ultimate sense of the word.

We swore we’d never forget the price we pay for freedom. Our bravest men and women have proudly paid that cost ever since. We swore we would never forget the unity of spirit and of purpose we all felt in the months after that fateful day.

Out of all the things we swore to remember, that has been the hardest. As we reflect on the last 11 years, we feel again the pain of loss we all felt on September 11, 2001. That’s why we should come together again as one nation, united under God.

Please take some time to visit these websites. They are online memorials of one of the most tragic events our country has experienced. Join me in renewing our promise to never forget that day

PLEASE take a minute out of your busy day to  pray for the September 11th victims and their families as well as those First Responders who lost their lives in the immediate aftermath. Leave us not forget either those who now protect us against such things but most importantly to remember this cowardly atrocity.

Make the next generation understand why we fight in Afghanistan and places like it, not because Americans love war, but because we love our freedom and security.

About lethalleprechaun

I believe in being the kind of man who, when my feet touch the floor in the morn', causes the Devil to say "BUGGER ME! HIMSELF IS UP!" ======== I'm a White Married Heterosexual who fervently believes in the war(s) we are fighting, the Second Amendment which I plan on defending with my last breath and my last round of ammunition as well as Arizona's stringent law on Immigration and the need for the border wall. I'm a right of center Con-centrist with Tea Party & Republican sympathies who drives an SUV. I am a Life Time Member of the NRA, a Charter Member of the Patriots' Border Alliance and North American Hunters Association. If there is a season for it and I can shoot one I'll eat it and proudly wear its fur. I believe PETA exists solely to be a forum for Gays, Vegetarians, Hollywood snobbery to stupid to get into politics and Soybean Growers. The ACLU stopped protecting our civil liberties sometime after the 1960s and now serves its own bigoted headline grabbing agenda much in the same way as the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am ecstatic that WE the PEOPLE finally got mad enough to rise up and take back the Government from WE the ENTITLED and reverently wish the Liberals would just get over the loss and quit whining/protesting all the time. After all they're just reaping what they've sown. I am Pro-choice both when it comes to the issue of abortion AND school prayer. I believe in a government for the people, by the people which represents and does the people's will. Therefore I an Pro States rights and mandatory term limits but against special interest group campaign contributions and soft money. I think that sports teams who allow their players to sit or take a knee during the National Anthem should be boycotted until the message is received that this is not acceptable behavior for role models for children. I believe Congressional salaries should be voted on bi-annually by the people they represent and not by themselves. I think Congress should be subject to every law they pass on the populace including any regarding Social Security or Healthcare. Speaking of the Healthcare bill (or con job as I see it) I hope Trump will overturn it and set things back to normal. I oppose the building of an Mosque or ANY Islamic center at or within a 10 mile radius of Ground Zero in New York. I will fight those in favor of this until hell freezes over and then I will continue to fight it hand to hand on the ice. Further I think the ban on immigrants from certain nations known to harbor and promote terrorism is a justified measure, at least until we can come up with better methods of vetting and tracking those non citizens we allow in the country. We did not inflict this measure on them those who refuse to point out, denounce or fight radical religious terrorism brought this upon themselves.

      No Paul,

      Thank the victims, their families and those who ran TOWARDS the disaster instead of away as sanity and self preservation were telling them to do.
