It was in tragedy that we as americans turned to God.   People that never entered church doors, went anyway grasping for a way to understand what happened.

We saw the words, “God Bless” everywhere, and no one seemed to complain about it…

In the lack of humanity shown by those that did this, we saw a enormous amount of humanity from inside our country.   Complete strangers held hands together… Cried together…

It’s been 12 years now…

All that’s left of that day is the 09/11 Memorial and each of our memories.

Much has changed… And not for the better.

We as a country had a chance.

An opportunity to repent.

A time to change our ways.

Instead, images like this are considered “too American.”

Our religious freedoms are being taken away in the name of sensitivity.   Christianity is under overt attack.

Students told that they cannot say the words, “God Bless” and teachers told to pray in closets.

Freedom of speech is dwindling away due to political correctness.  We mustn’t offend anyone.

Those that are the quickest to demand tolerance are in fact, the least tolerant.

What has happened, America?

Have you forgotten?

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
– John Adams

“The only foundation for education and a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object of life and life of all republican governments.”
–Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Independence

“In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed. No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.”
–Noah Webster, author of the first American dictionary

The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?
–Ben Franklin

“For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the LORD our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him? 

And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day? 

Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren.”

Deut. 4:7-9

    Best post I’ve seen in regards to the 9/11 tragedy. You took the words from my heart and expressed them beautifully. How easy it is to turn to God in tragedy, but once the smoke clears we stubbornly cling to our personal comforts and desires. Thank you.
