Remember 20 years ago today?

Remember 20 years ago after we were attacked by terrorists, how everyone came together?


Me too.

I remember 9/11/11, who could forget?

I remember 9/12/11 how Americans came together despite all our differences and stores sold out of flags.

I remember Benghazi 9/11/12 when four Americans were killed, when operators were denied additional security or calls for help and Hilliary went on to say “What difference, at this point, does it make. It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can, to prevent it from ever happening again.”

I remember when we lost 13 in the uncoordinated debacle retreat from Afghanistan

I remember a president that wanted to keep Americans safe, and protect our borders, requiring illegals to enter thru the same process my grandparents did.

I remember a president that got the law passed about The Right To Try. It really seems like Ivermectin, which has been used for 80 some years on humans with little side-effects and has been proven to help with Covid 19 could be asked for before going to ventilators. I wish my dad would’ve had the Right to Try back in 2002/2003.

I remember when natural immunity counted for something.
I remember the old definition of a vaccine and herd immunity.
I remember back when Covid19 was less known and it seemed like Ebola that it was just 2 weeks of having our freedoms and liberties stifled to flatten the curve.

I remember when you couldn’t hide behind a screen and things were never said like what we all read on a screen.

I miss freedoms, I miss united but not identical, I miss respect and I miss gratefulness, common sense, and people being civil when they don’t share the same views.

I don’t remember being told to seek early treatment with any other virus in the past.
I don’t remember ever feeling so divided, so mentally tired so discouraged for so long.
I don’t remember the government being quite so hypocritical and continuing to move the goal post to fit their agenda.

I try to remember to pray for our wisdom for our leaders, regardless if I voted for them, because to wish them ill is like cutting off your nose to spite your face.
I remember to pray for your men and women in blue, our soldiers, firefighters and those trying to keep us safe.

I remember when we learned from history without trying to rewrite it.

I remember that this world is not my final home, Heaven is.
I remember Matthew 7:12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them to you. I remember the words to I pledge allegiance. “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

United we Stand. Divided we fall.
