Today is a day of remembrance. Unfortunately, in our society it can’t be civil anymore. Disagreeing with a person politically can result in being “shouted down” and verbally abused to a mob showing up at your house/neighborhood with violence occurring. “Journalists” spout hateful rhetoric and push their agenda instead of reporting the truth. I am not picking on either side, all “journalists” are biased. Politicians are willing to do whatever is necessary to ensure that their “party” rule the ashes. It is shameful. It wasn’t Republicans or Democrats killed on 9/11. It was American citizens. Period. Their political affiliation didn’t save them. You didn’t see politicians in the rubble trying to help the injured. It was Americans. You didn’t see Hollywood put on Hazmat gear and line up to help put out the flames, protect the children, or comfort those who lost so much. American heroes put their lives on the line to assist people they didn’t know. Police and firefighters worked tirelessly to recover the injured. Those are heroes. How soon we forget. Amazingly, Hollywood hurls insults at the current administration like it is their job. Disagreements are politicized, and neighborhoods are burnt to the ground “for a cause.” America has given so much for so many, only to be weakened by our own. The attacks from 9/11 should unify us. Instead, we have career politicians pushing division. The mainstream media glorifies mass shootings and then cry about the ineptitude of the government when they are just as responsible for the next shooting. It seems that we can’t even remember 9/11 without “journalists” writing opinions for major newspapers’ claiming that the current President is the “greatest” threat facing America. It is time to put aside the petty crap and realize that divided we accomplish nothing.

I am a good ole country boy residing in North Mississippi. I love to read, fish, hunt, hike and go to garage sales. Flea markets are a passion of mine. I read anything, but some of my favorites are: Dean Koontz, Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, and I possess a fondness for the writings of William Faulkner and Mark Twain. If I am forced to choose, I prefer baseball to football. I enjoy Alabama football (Roll Tide)! My baseball teams include: The Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox. I am divorced, the father of two daughters and live by myself with Chunk and Roscoe (my dogs). View all posts by frontporchmusings694846020
