Remembering 9-11

As we remember the events of September 11 we must put first in our thoughts who we mourn and second what is worth fighting for.  I, for one, cannot recall that date without a bitter taste, an eerie suspicion of truths untold, of enemies both without and within. As a thinking man I find simple bandwagon patriotism distasteful because real loyalty is a bittersweet pill.  And what is it I am loyal too, and who are the enemies? What does that flag mean? Well I can say this much for certain; thousands of innocent people lost their lives. Heroism we cannot imagine was dished out daily by soldiers who paid with lifelong agony and death.  So even while we as a country erode the very things that we supposedly stand for in the name of fighting terrorism, the enemy is real and there is cause to mourn and remember.  Let's be cautious when lofty politicians throw blame, and let's be vigilant against a militant  sect stuck in the 13th century, and let's never forget those caught in the middle. I'm proud to salute our troops, the flag, and the constitution of the United States of America. There may come a day when that makes me a "terrorist" too. Hooah!
