In relation to 9/11 many clamor for the truth of what happened on that fateful day. At times even truth can be co-opted to support one’s position over another. Discussing this issue has made me into a pariah so to speak since I do not agree with people like Rosie O’Donnell.
In America we do have the right to our own beliefs based upon what we have read, viewed and what has been relayed to us. I do believe that this will be my last column in addressing this issue since I do feel there are more pressing needs to help our fellow Americans such as jobs, health care and many more vital issues. I will be breaking this column up into various talking points.
I have heard people refer to Rosie O’Donnell as their hero or St. Rosie. Excuse me the term hero should rightfully go to the firefighters and police officers that lost their lives on that horrific day. I do believe as many were rushing up the stairs into the Twin Towers, they were in essence climbing their own stairway to heaven. The heroes of that tragic event also were the numerous volunteers who gave of their time to help their fellow Americans. They dropped everything and asked; how can I help? Our heroes are also our soldiers that have died in these recent years and even the ones still living or have come home maimed. Whether or not you agree with the administration’s use of them, they are heroes’ none-the-less.
