  1. 17 years ago, I was a Special Forces Guard Guy. I had just returned from the weekly stand-up at the Ops Group. I heard something on the radio about an explosion at the WTC. I went down to the team room and got one of the little black and white TV’s. I just got it turned on and tuned in in time to see the plane hit WTC2. I picked up the phone and called the Unit Commander and told him “We are at war”. He had been watching it at the University and was well aware of what was happening. We went over short term plans that had to be completed in preparation for deployment. I reminded him that we currently had one team of four personnel at a JRTC training rotation at Ft Polk. Finished that call and then did a ring down of the recall roster and told the unit to talk to their employers and prepare them for their departure, talk to your families and prepare them, prep your bags and get your power of attorneys and your wills up to date and stand by for orders.

    I hate this day, even 17 years after it crushes my heart. Because as much as was stolen and killed and harmed 17 years ago, as much as we have fought and died and paid the price

    This nation has forgotten.

    Well some have, not those who will never forgive and those who will never forget,
    But those who didn’t want to see when it happened,
    those who made excuses for those who did such evil,
    they are the ones who claimed we caused this,
    and are the ones who claim today that they are “The religion of peace”
    That we are the ones who caused the problems in the world,
    That we deserved this.

    I hate this day, obama proclaimed whose side he was on,
    and was elected twice.
    He comes out this month and complains that the recovery that President Trump has brought,
    is his.

    And the Media celebrates. I hate this day, not because of what it has meant,
    But because those in power have not remembered,
    And that means that another day must come.
    I hate this day.
