But I won’t forget.
Not only will I not forget, I will choose to remember.
I will remember…
- that freedom isn’t free, and there are those who want to steal it.
- that Christ came “to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound;” therefore America is never more “Christ-like” than when its people shed their blood for the freedom of others, whether they love us, or not.
- that it wasn’t secularists, militarists, or a bunch of Baptist preachers who crashed four aircraft on that day, killing thousands.
- the Byzantine Empire and Constantinople – they weren’t converted to Islam through peaceful conversion.
- who is considered the “Great Satan” and what countries are truly religiously intolerant.
- the heroes who went back into those buildings to rescue anyone they could.
- the heroes who fought back and said, “Let’s roll!”
- the heroes who go into harm’s way for freedom every day.
- that America was founded by men who knew God; who recognized the hand of Providence; and who knew when to bow a knee and call to God for deliverance.
- that we (and all freedom-loving people) are in a life-and-death struggle between opposing worldviews – a war. Losing can’t be an option.
I will also choose to remember, and not forget, that America, no matter its current faults and flaws, is made up of a people, who, when push comes to shove, will take the fight for freedom anywhere in the world. We will also defend it. That’s who we are.
Or are we? I’m beginning to wonder.
Now the flag is an offense and the Anthem alone is insufficient.
I won’t forget that, either.
God Save America! We’re Beyond Blessed.
