Liberty Remembered 6/6/2022

This morning I published the first mage below on a number of Facebook groups that I belong to and it it got me to thinking. The news media today is focused on the attempted overthrow of the United States Government that took place last year. I don’t usually post political ideas on this blog and will not make this a normal practice. However, this is a day that will live in infamy in the same way Pearl Harbor and 9/11 do.

The day before 9/11/2001, New York City looked like this but on that day more than the skyline was changed forever. Last year the US Capitol was attacked for the first time since the war of 1812. This day has to be remembered in the same way as 9/11 is. In some ways it is even a more significant event. The people that attacked the Capitol were Americans. Deluded in their beliefs in the same way the traitors who seceded from the United States were in 1861. We can never forget 1/6/2021 and have to bond together to thwart the mob and stop extremism and every tear remember the insurrection as long as hate and extremism exist in our country .

Flight 93 Memorial Shanksville PA

It was a beautiful day yesterday with a crystal clear blue sky just like on 9/11/2001. It was perfect day to visit the national memorial at Shanksville PA. I learned a lot from the visit. For example, I did not know all the terrorists had first class seats. The exhibit details the events and the 40 brave heroes who saved the US Capitol from destruction. It is sobering to realize how close we were to losing our elected government that day. Congress was in session as the terrorists seized control of the plane and turned it back towards Washington DC. We owe gratitude to the quick action and sacrifice of those who thwarted the attempt.

The tower is 93 feet tall and has forty wind powered bells for each passenger that sacrificed their lives that day. It is a humbling and enjoyable visit and a beautiful monument.
