Perhaps …

By: Carolyn Hileman

Perhaps they have forgotten, the planes flying into buildings, the people jumping from buildings just trying to escape the inferno all around them. Perhaps they have forgotten the parade of people across our television screens holding pictures of loved ones, hoping against hope that someone somewhere had seen them. Perhaps they have forgotten the Priest that lost his life because he took his hard hat off to better hear a dying mans confession. Perhaps they have forgotten, perhaps.

You see the Democrat National Convention recently refused to allow a Catholic Cardinal to bless their convention; however they will be hosting Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours. Now allow me to be politically correct here and say that I am sure there are some good American Muslims, that said their convention will be held from September 3rd to September 6th, the two hour prayer will be held from 1-3 on Friday August 31 at the DNC according to their flyer.

To me the choice has become abundantly clear for this election, we can either continue down the road politically correct amnesia or we can look back to September 11, 2001. That day we were proud to be an American, that day we were not ready to cower to anyone, that day is now a memory. Today, they have either broken ground or built their mosque in clear view of the 9/11 site and on August 31st they will be heading up the Democratic convention, how far we have come.

We have come a long way since the days of standing in line for hours to give blood, buying lemonade to donate to the victims, digging out our last dollar to put in the hat to help the survivors. We are past the nights of candlelight vigils, our flags are safely tucked away now. But I wonder, if way down deep inside of you if you get that twinge of something is so very wrong here. That maybe you as well as I feel that this is the ultimate slap in the face to our 9/11 heroes, that this is a line you just cannot cross, the one time that you say, to hell with politically correct.

Just eleven days before we remember the day that was 9/11 and the people who killed our people, the Democratic convention will be headlining their convention with a two hour Muslim prayer. People have said there is not much difference between the parties, I beg to differ, this is a very big difference. Perhaps you have forgotten, perhaps they have forgotten, perhaps.
