9/11 ‘Truthers’ Should Leave Theories At Home on Anniversary
Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon. It will be a day of remembrance and mourning, and at no point in time should there be any people bringing up conspiracy theories.
The first few months after 9/11 our country came together like I had never seen before. The last time that probably happened was during WWII after the attacks at Pearl Harbor. It was great to see everyone waving flags proudly and greeting complete strangers.
I want to say about a year after that we started to hear people cooking up conspiracy theories about the attacks and how our government was involved in plotting them. Now I'm not the most patriotic person, but there is not a bone in my body that would believe that our own country would want to destroy the lives of that many of it's own people.
These days you can hardly talk about 9/11 without some know it all jerk jumping down your throat with some sort of theory. I blame people like Michael Moore and his cooked up 'documentary' Fahrenheit 9/11 for fueling these peoples fire. So I am asking as one American to another, to please leave all the conspiracy theory stuff at home tomorrow.
Instead lets remember all the brave men and women who lost their lives that day. Not just the unfortunate people in the buildings and planes, but the fire fighters, paramedics, police officers and soldiers who died trying to save them. On Monday, you can pick up right where you left off, but for tomorrow let us just be one united country remembering not the tragedy, but how we got through it and survived.
