9/11 through fresh eyes

Most of us remember the morning of 9/11. It was shocking. Unthinkable. WE were all drawn together by confusion, fear, and uncertainty.

This week, there is the annual abundance of 9/11 replays. As I sat and watched it, something struck me as wrong.

If some terrorists, or some evil maniacs wanted to attack the US, and it was that easy – would they have stopped at just a couple of buildings? What’s the point of that? You would have to know that the US would respond.

If I was some tyranical idiot looking to rule the world, I would have done a lot more damage than that. Wouldn’t you?

I’ve heard grumblings about what we saw and heard on that day not being true, but I pooh-poohed it. That’s nonsense, right?

 

Could it all have been staged as a way to take away our rights? The US has been in an increasing police state ever since. I mean, going into organic farms, small supplement companies, and an establishment selling raw milk with guns drawn, and destroying everything is happening a little too often for comfort. And do you feel safer after some power hungry agent fondles you in the name of security?

The world has been in a constant state of distraction. We’re too busy and too overwhelmed to pay much attention to anything that’s not survival. And that is dangerous for us all.

The events of 9/11 were horrific in their own right, but if this indeed was all staged, if the muslim people are just handy pawns, if the loss of hundreds of lives means so little – we truly are in trouble. I’ve tried to ignore it all and live my life the best I can, but its getting harder and harder to ignore.

“For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and swept them away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man…” Therefore, keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”

And what are we supposed to do? Patiently endure. Not my strong point. How about you?

    I absolutely agree with you. I think it will take a long time to reverse, if ever. There are too many members of the “herd”. The strategy may work, but I am always trying to avoid “herd” situations.
