As I think back to where I was on 9/11/01 (Basic Training) and about all of the lives lost as a result of the worst attack on US soil...I can’t help but think about how the entire nation came together as one...UNIFIED, no matter woman, man, stranger, black, white, Mexican, Asian , etc. We were unified and that was an incredibly powerful feeling. We were indestructible!! You could hear it, you could feel it.
You could make eye contact with a complete stranger and just knew that they felt it too and that if shit went down...they had your back just like you would have theirs. An unspoken promise that we would never allow this to happen again...at any cost. We were fucking PATRIOTS....WE WERE FUCKING PROUD TO BE AMERICAN and we didn’t hesitate to let anyone know and if you crossed us...you would pay the price.
That was such POWERFUL feeling...such a tragedy strengthened our bond as AMERICANS. We put all of the BS aside to come together.
But, somewhere along the line, the UNITY and PATRIOTISM faded away like the smoke over NYC did.
I am saddened by the state of our COUNTRY and how DIVIDED we all are. We disagree with each other because we don’t belong to the same party and fight and belittle each other over differences in opinion instead of talking it out. We are quick to judge, hate, protest every little thing because it isn’t going our way! It makes me incredibly sad to see the state this amazing COUNTRY is in
It shouldn’t take a tragedy to bring us TOGETHER. We should all be working together...UNIFIED. We all want what is best for us and our COUNTRY but we can’t seem to work together to achieve our best interests. Do we even know what our best interests are anymore?
We need that UNITY back. We need that PATRIOTISM back. We need our COUNTRY back.
ONE NATION...INDIVISIBLE! 🇺🇸
