    on 9/12/01...this country stood as one....the free world stood with us... now look at the people of the us...we should be ashamed....the biggest concerns as our country fails ...are rallies and who had the best one...

    we should all be ashamed of what was wasted...and ourselves for allowing it to be wasted?

    what happened?

    Truth is we were united for a while, and it was a good thing. Until someone said "We need to start thinking about getting re-elected".

    It all started to fall apart when the political spins began to be put on the 9/11 event.

    We were united until some idiots started saying things like "America is to blame for this" and "We had it coming".

    We allowed ourselves to be distracted by a phantom enemy called Islamic extremists. Growing weary of that, we turned on each other. Now many just look to self promotion and government funding of their current wants without concern for the future.

    Bones, this question is one I love to answer.

    I offer the following"

    A husband and wife are going to dinner on the evening of their 40th wedding anniversary.

    The wife is reminiscing of the days when they were first married, how close they were, finding places off the side of the road to make love, sitting side by side as they were driving no matter the destination.

    Suddenly she turns to her husband and asks, "What's happened to us?"

    He replies, "I don't know, I'm in the same place I've always been."

    Democracy, by its very nature, divides populations along political lines.

    9/12/01 was an exception to that rule...national crisis and war can unite a Democracy, if only for a short while.
