Definitely a day for remembering … As Senator Ted Cruz expressed it back in 2015:
“Fourteen years have passed since September 11, 2001, a day that changed the trajectory of the United States. The worst terrorist attack on our homeland taught us two things: that our oceans would not protect us from a determined enemy in the 21st century, and that radical Islamic terrorism was not a regional annoyance with limited capacity, but a real and present danger to our very way of life.
“Today, we remember the victims: the people in the twin towers of the World Trade Center, that emblem of America’s economic power, and the first responders who charged in to save them. The military and civilian personnel in the Pentagon working to keep our country safe. The innocent passengers on those four doomed flights, some of whom heroically sacrificed themselves to minimize the casualties on the ground.
“We definitely owe it to the memory of those whose lives were lost to squarely face the ongoing, virulent threat of radical Islamic terrorism, unafraid to call it what it is, as we defend ourselves and the founding principles that make America the greatest force for good in the world.”
To this day, I still remember vividly sitting in my church prayer chapel with about 6 other scattered people that afternoon reading through Romans 1 and 2, together with Revelation 18, and II Samuel 1 about “how the mighty have fallen, fallen”.
Perhaps in retrospect, the ones that perished then are the blessed ones. They have not witnessed the callousness of the leadership that has, since their passing, thrown away this nation and her freedoms for the price of 30 pieces of silver. Now on nineteen years of aggravated leadership on both sides of the aisle, contentiously and complicitly putting all of our lives in danger. Ignorance did not bring us here – callous greed of the elite in the media and political realms did.
So now God has blessed us with a man after his own heart, one President Donald John Trump, and the very first thing the demoMarxocrats put in play – even well before Donald John Trump became the president-elect – was to use all efforts possible to prevent his arrival and setting down within the political theater.
Thankfully, God is not to be outdone and has definitely not forgotten that following his inauguration, this nation was dedicated to Him by George Washington on April 30, 1789 in St. Paul’s Chapel on Broadway (not far from Ground Zero). Our God fights with us if we decide to fight with Him, and may the Body of Christ awaken and arise to answer to Him because “we are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”.
Repent America, Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand…
Definitely a day for remembering, and on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill, thanking GOD for President Donald John Trump that he prosper mightily as he goes forward to MAGA! KAG!
DIRGE WITHOUT MUSIC ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay:
I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground.
So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely. Crowned
With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned.
Lovers and thinkers, into the earth with you.
Be one with the dull, the indiscriminate dust.
A fragment of what you felt, of what you knew,
A formula, a phrase remains,—but the best is lost.
The answers quick and keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love,—
They are gone. They are gone to feed the roses. Elegant and curled
Is the blossom. Fragrant is the blossom. I know. But I do not approve.
More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET!!
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a
covenant between me and the earth.
~ Genesis 9:13-16
