Not Media Covered 911 Rally

As usual Atlas Shrugs is always on top of what the Media does not want you to know. During all the 911 activities there was a rally going on. Click on this link to get the 411. Thanks Ms Pamela for staying on top of things and getting the truth out.

Never Forget

Four years ago the daughter of police officer Moira Smith who was killed on 9-11, Patricia Smith, held the hand of her father James Smith on stage during the reading of names of victims of 9-11 during ceremonies at Ground Zero September 11, 2006 in New York City. The day marked the fifth anniversary of the hijacked plane attacks that killed almost 3,000 people in New York City, Washington and Pennsylvania.

There are people in the media who have asked if Americans will ever "Get Over This." Like the victims of Pearl Harbor I can honestly say no, no America will never "Get Over This" because it's not just about the heartlessness of this attack , but the real loss to Americans of their mothers,fathers,sons and daughters,best friends,relatives and especially that real sense of safety we always felt we had here in this country. On September 11th all Americans will mourn and never forget who and what died that day. And on that day every year we will resolve to NEVER let that happen again especially when we see the faces of those left behind like Patricia Smith. Believe that.

The Ten Cannots by Rev. William J. H. Boetcker 1916

Often attributed to Abraham Lincoln probably because it was included in a leaflet printed in 1942 by a conservative political organization called the Committee for Constitutional Government with quotes from Lincoln these words still stand today. Look up Boetcker a very interesting person in his own right.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
