Three Years On

• Views: 1,708

Three years ago America was attacked by teams of Islamic terrorists in a well-organized plan to murder thousands of people. They lived among us for years, taking full advantage of our free society to gain the knowledge, experience, and access they needed to kill us, hiding their virulent hatred behind masks of indifference.

If their diabolical scheme had gone off the way they envisioned, the World Trade Center towers would have fallen over onto the surrounding buildings and into the morning rush hour streets, killing many more than the three thousand who died in the buildings when they collapsed. They flew those planes into the towers from opposite directions, so that when they toppled the destruction and death would be maximized.

Throughout the Arab world, and in some places in America, our enemies danced and celebrated the carnage.

On the third year after September 11, at LGF we haven’t forgotten the promise we made on that day:

Never again.

At LGF our mission is to expose the ideologies, plans, and allies of our enemies, so that as citizens we have the information we need to defend ourselves—and to demand that our government defend us.

Some of the spoiled, self-hating sons and daughters of our rich society tell themselves that by mocking the events of that day, they’re showing intelligence and sophistication.

But the war has barely begun.

Mass media will be airing various retrospectives on September 11. We’ll see the images of the planes, the burning towers, the collapse, the gigantic dust clouds. But a few of the people who died that day are still being ignored, in this age when many believe they can make unpleasant realities vanish by not looking.

If I had made this awful choice, on a beautiful September morning that turned into hell, I would have wanted to be remembered. I would have wanted the people who lived on to have the courage to witness my choice, and witness the result.

Never forget.
