On September 11, 2011, which is a Sunday, families all across America (and some around the world) will be remembering that terrible day ten years ago that affected the lives of so many.
Families are invited to a memorial to be held in New York; but not without controversy. Families all across America will attend their houses of worship; and reflect not only on the lives lost there; but the thousands of lives lost in the wars that followed. This was not an attack against buildings; but against families.
Will the terrorist who attacked the World Trade Center gain yet another victory against the American people by the choices made by New York Mayor Bloomberg?
There are already fiercely, hot debates about the Muslim Center being located so near the site where radical Muslims destroyed the towers; and killed so many people from all over the world. There is already an angry protest over the iron cross that survived the falling towers.
Vision to America writes: “New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has rightly come under withering criticism for banning all clergy and all prayer at this year’s 9/11 commemoration ceremony. It is inexcusable for the mayor to ban prayer at a solemn event of this magnitude, a tragedy that deeply affected all Americans. The faith of millions of Americans in God sustained them on that day and the days that followed, and churches were packed the Sunday following 9/11 with people looking to their pastors for spiritual comfort and guidance.”
Mr. Bloomberg, we respect your position and your religion – why don’t you respect the desires of the people in New York; and all across the nation for theirs? This is not about you, not about President Obama; or any of the other political speakers – this is about the America people; and what they want and desire.
THIS MEMORIAL SHOULD NOT 0NLY BE FOR THOSE WHO DIED ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001; BUT FOR ALL OF OUR MILITARY WHO HAVE DIED OR BEEN SEVERELY WOUNDED – AND THE OVER 900 FIRST RESPONDERS WHO HAVE DIED SINCE THAT DAY. BUT FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO SUFFERED OTHER LOSSES – FINANCES, MARRIAGES; AND LOST OF BUSINESSES. WE HAVE SEEN AND HEARD ENOUGH FROM POLITICIANS; AND IT IS TIME WE MEDITATE; AND HEAR FROM GOD!
America, watch this new tribute video on YouTube that honors all those on that day – the victims of the World Towers, the victims at the Pentagon, the victims on the ground, the victims of the first responders – and America the greatest victim of all. This is new and the link is below of the side bar does not open.
And now as we approach the tenth anniversary of that day that will live in the hearts and minds of Americans like the cries, “Remember the Alamo, Remember the Maine, Remember Pearl Harbor – and now Remember 9/11,” let us remember there was no anti-religious bigotry launched against these other terrible events in the history of our country – why should there be now?
Mr. Bloomberg your excuse is flimsy. Mr. Bloomberg, do you remember how this brought our country closer together and for a while closer to God?
You could give two minutes to a member of each recognized religion that would cover everyone; and you could even give an atheist two minutes to stand there and deny God if that would make them happy. Ten clergy would take no more than 20 minutes. People are not going to watch any more political speeches anyway. You will hear the roar of collective clicks on the TV set all over the country. Mr. Bloomberg, do you fear hurting the feelings of Muslims, over doing what is right for all Americans?
When will citizens finally stand up and say – enough is enough is enough; and take back their country from the hands of the atheisst/socialists/communists and terrorist? There are beginning sounds of other rumblings not that of a building; but the sounds of a falling economy which is the plan of the socialists to dominate America. However, these sounds will continue to such a crescendo as to sound like the cannon during the Civil War.
First the rumblings will come softly and as the people one by one join in the march against communism – the music will swell – the drums will get louder – and the people will once again stand tall and stand for liberty – all liberty including religious liberty. They will take back the country starting with the true Constitution; and not the perverted versions of today’s politicians and judges. History will one day show this.
Will we see the first of this gathering on September 11, 2011 when thousands of cars could form a blockade around the ground zero site?
Would such a protest against this memorial gathering make the statement all Americans wish to make; or would it only cause more pain for family and survivors? Would they understand that such a protest would be to honor their loved ones; as well as those who died trying to save as many as they could? Would they understand that this has already been made a battle ground; and that it is as good a place as any to take a stand against the coming holocaust of America?
Would another effort be more productive and positive like millions of people all across this nation gathering in their selected houses of worship; and spend the time in prayer and memorial for those who died in the crashes of 9/11; and those who have died fighting in the wars since?
In a free America (remember those days), where do the rights of those who worship God get mashed in the mud by those who are trying daily to destroy all that America has always stood for?
Many people of faith and those who were first responders who didn’t have to wait to be invited to that horrible holocaust on September 11, 2001, and they are outraged that they were not included in the tenth anniversary memorial service to be held at ground zero.
There is a grassroots/ground swell effort being organized to block the streets around ground zero two hours before the set time. People are asked to get into their cars and drive slowly – ten miles per hour – around Wall Street and then circle around all the streets where the World Trade towers fell on that day of horror.
The idea is to block all of those trying to get to the memorial service for what this group calls the “political” memorial. Some may feel this is taking this solemn time and turning it into a “campaign” show. While others may feel a blockade would show disrespect to the families of those who perished.
REASON FOR THIS PROTEST:
This protest is in response to NYC Mayor Bloomberg not allowing 9/11 FIRST RESPONDER’S to attend America’s TENTH ANNIVERSARY Memorial – for refusing to allow prayer and/or clergy to be present at the ceremony remembering 9/11 – and for turning this Day of Remembrance into a day unlike any other previous day, filled with a politician’s agenda! When they read the names of those who perished, will they also call out the names of those who died in war as a result of the attack on 9/11?
Has the time come for people of faith to take a stand against the anti-God attacks on Americans who believe in God and to defend the rights of those who were there on that day serving their country as first responders, clergy, and others who worked to make a horrible disaster a little less horrific?
“For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His head; and He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.”
“According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompense to His enemies; to the islands He will repay recompense.”
“So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood….. the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:17-19
