Disbelief..............

Good morning dear blogging friends.  I don't usually like to complain on my blog, but something made me upset this morning and I wanted to share it with you.  I was sitting with my coffee and picked up the paper to glance at it before starting my day.  I turned the first page, and a letter to the editor grabbed my attention...and I read in disbelief as the writer of that letter bitterly complained about the paper's coverage of the Anniversary of 9-11.  Now to back up a bit, our paper had featured a few stories each day for the last two weeks.  These stories included interviews from those who had lost loved ones and the like, and each of them were quite moving to read....they were well done.

Then, along comes this guy who derided the newspaper for too much coverage, saying it was shoved down our throats and that the events of 9-11 are 'history, so let's keep it that way' and "move on".  Although I was not personally effected by the horrible events that occurred that day, I for one, will never forget, and I feel we must learn from the 'history' of our country....but for many, the events of that day will forever be with them, for they lost sons, daughters, husbands, wives, babies and grandparents.  We should NEVER forget those events or the people who perished, any more than we can forget the events of WWI, WWII, the Korean, Vietnam or Gulf or the current War...because each of those lives lost has meaning and purpose. 

Although I am not eloquent in trying to put down my feelings on 'paper', I can say that it breaks my heart to think that there are some in our beautiful country who cannot see the importance of remembering....may God bless America, and have mercy on those who could care less.

  1. Some folks just aren't happy unless they can complain about something. Thank goodness for the rest of us that balance things out. ;)

  3. I think there was a lot of coverage on FNC, but it was a tragic event, that we need to always remember! I told my husband that it was "our Pearl Harbor"....meaning our generation's. If that guy doesn't want to remember it, then he can stick his head in the sand!....Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  4. There has to be one in every crowd....It's unfortunate, but true. And yet he/she is likely the sort who would be outraged if they were personally affected by a tragedy and did not get the respect they felt entitled to. So sad.....Robin

  6. WOW! That person should be ashamed. I am with you as I wasn't "personally" affected by the events but I will never forget ~& those who lost their lives & the loved ones left behind & the ones who are fighting for us deserve so much more from us than we could ever say or repay. Some people are just wrong.

  9. Hi Wendy..long time no see..I'been really busy but glad to take this evening to read everyone's post...
    Very well said.. that would have upset me as well but there is always someone who isn't happy with something.. I guess the best way to look at his post and accept it is to Thank God we live in a free country where he has the right to openly complain..knowing that helps me deal with people like that.. God Bless the rest of us who see the good in remembering our country's history and all those who parished to ensure our freedom!!

    Have a gret weekend!!

    Hugs
