The following verse is taken from the Quran, the
Islamic holy book:
“For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome
Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of
Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still
more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of
Allah and there was peace.”
That was verse 9.11 of the Quran
Make no mistake, I am not attacking anyone’s culture, views, or religion. I simply thought that was interesting, so I shared it with you, the reader.
9/11.. a lot of thoughts and pictures come up when you think of those numbers or that phrase. This is the very day that changed the world forever, and definitely changed this great nation forever. If you ask any American where they were on September,11,2001 , you will always get an answer. Because as Americans, we have made it clear that we will NEVER FORGET that fateful morning.
This is my story, on how that day went:
September 11, 2001
I was in 4th grade and It was a sunny day unlike any other in south Florida.
I got to school and for some reason or another my class got moved to another class. Strange, but the day went on just as any other, or so I thought.
So as class begun, we had morning announcements, and then the Pledge of Allegiance. I never really knew what the Pledge of Allegiance was or why we said it every morning until a few years later but it really speaks as to what this country is about, but I’ll get to that later..
Almost immediately after the Pledge of Allegiance, a teacher busts through the door and screams LAS TORRES LAS TORRES!!!(spanish for the towers). And this was the first event to a day filled with chaos. Literally no more than 20 minutes after that, my dad came to pick me up and he took me to Wendy’s to get something to eat (at 10 in the AM, I know right?). We sat in the parking lot to eat trying to reflect on what just happened, although I will admit the matter was a bit blurry to me still. All I knew for sure was that something really bad had just happened. When I got home I asked my brother what was going on as I was Reading the headline on AOL (remember that?). He was too much of a teenaged asswhole to answer my question (no I didn’t spell that wrong, he was literally a whole ass).
Is New York at war with America?
Are we going to die too?
Are we going to go to war(we will).
Why would someone do this?
My then ignorant older brother did not take any of this seriously since I was just a confused 9 year old.I had to wait for Nick News(remember that?) to explain it to me. I was upset they interrupted spongebob, but now I thank you Linda Ellerbee. 9/11 will forever be a day of mourning and remembrance in American history.
Since then I have learned a lot about what happened: I’ve done a lot of research and read up on this day.There is a lot of speculation as to whom is responsible for 9/11, but regardless of what you believe, we can all agree that what happened that day was horrifying and humanizing .
For a 3rd time in 100 years, the United States was vulnerable(Great Depression, Pearl Harbor, and now 9/11) . It was a shocking reminder of how even the mightiest of Titans can fall. At its worst moment, we as Americans have pulled through and grown stronger than ever.
At that moment, we stopped being individuals, and started being a country for which it stands, America became truly indivisible, and united under god. On the night when we performed an operation to kill this nation’s greatest enemy, it was an act of liberty, and justice for all was finally served.
America’s darkest days have been followed by its brightest hour. I am proud to say that I have experienced the fear, doubtfulness, and the pride of being an American. God bless the 2977 American souls that were lost on that infamous day In New York, Virginia, and that field in Pennsylvania. God bless the soldiers who fought for our freedom. God bless you for reading this, and
GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
I’m not a democrat nor a republican but I’ll share this story with you because:
1. I used this in a question my friend asked on facebook(how has Obama made your life better) and it was a pretty good small essay and I just couldn’t let it go to waste.
2 Also, I havent posted on this blog yet ’cause I really didn’t have anything to write until now. So, I decided this would be a good first post.
3. Please do not label my blog as political or Pro-Obama. If you know me you know I’m not about that.
In late 2010, my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer. She had been struggling with what her old doctors described as bronchitis.Apparently she had it for years before and her old doctor never found it until she went to Emory. When they found out how far it had progressed, they decided to take action as soon as they could and they had to surgically remove an entire lung. The doctors said the surgery and chemo combined would take an average of 10 years off her life expectancy. But, they couldn’t start right away because she was uninsured at the time. Her condition was described as pre-existing to the insurance companies as well as the hospital. Thanks to ObamaCare she was able to receive insurance to help cover the costs of the surgery as well as chemotherapy following the months after that. My mother fully recovered and lives life to the fullest even though her chest may be half full ( get it?). If it wasn’t for ObamaCare I probably wouldn’t have my mother in my life today.Honestly, I never thought about that until right now. Most people don’t know about this part of my life because its not something I really enjoy talking about. That is how Obama has made my life better. He saved my mother’s life.
