Let’s reclaim the post-9/11 unity

Ten Septembers have come and gone since that awful morning. But on this 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we are summoned once more to honor those we lost by keeping our country strong and true to their memory.

Over the coming days, we will remember nearly 3,000 innocent victims — fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters who were simply going about their daily lives on a beautiful Tuesday morning. And we’ll talk to our children about what happened on that day, and what’s happened since.

Like every American, I’ll never forget how I heard the terrible news, on the car radio on my way to work in Chicago. Yet like a lot of younger Americans, our daughters have no memory of that day. Malia was just 3; Sasha was an infant. As they’ve grown, Michelle and I faced the same challenge as other parents in deciding how to talk with our children about 9/11.

One of the things we’ve told them is that the worst terrorist attack in American history also brought out the best in our country. Firefighters, police and first responders rushed into danger to save others. Americans came together in candlelight vigils, in our houses of worship and on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Volunteers lined up to give blood and drove across the country to lend a hand. Schoolchildren donated their savings. Communities, faith groups and businesses collected food and clothing. We were united, as Americans.

This is the true spirit of America we must reclaim this anniversary — the ordinary goodness and patriotism of the American people and the unity that we needed to move forward together, as one nation…

On a day when others sought to destroy, we choose to build. Once again, Sept. 11 will be a National Day of Service and Remembrance, and at Serve.gov every American can make a commitment to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11 by serving our neighbors and communities.

    He should spend a lot more days in the soup kitchens to meet all of those extra folks who can’t get back up on their feet since he’s unleashed his job-killing policies on this country.

    What a jerk! What a SCoaMF! He IS the worst President ever – a historical President.

  • rbosque

    We can only “reclaim our unity” by shipping the left to Afganistan, that includes this fool of a “President”.

  • Stuart

    Congratulations Barak. It’s obvious from the photo you have finally found something you’re competent at.

    After all, he is the “Food Stamp” President.

    President Bush proclaims 9/11 day of Prayer and Remembrance

    President George W. Bush has issued a proclamation declaring Friday, September 5 through Sunday, September 7, 2008 to be National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, reports Catholic News Agency.

    In the August 28 proclamation, Bush said during these days of Prayer and Remembrance, “we pay special tribute to the thousands of innocent victims who died on September 11, 2001.”

    “Our Nation honors the brave citizens, service members, police officers, and firefighters who heroically responded in the face of terror,” he continued, adding “we reflect on the terrible events of September 11, 2001, and lift the victims and their families in our prayers.”

    “Our Nation will never forget the individuals who lost their lives in New York, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon,” President Bush wrote. “America remains inspired by the countless acts of kindness and sacrifice we saw that day — fearless rescuers who rushed toward danger, a beloved priest who died helping others, two office workers who carried a disabled person 68 floors to safety.”

    Saying the nation also prays for the “safety and success” of the members of the Armed Forces “now serving freedom’s cause,” Bush writes, “We seek God’s grace on their families, and commit to Heaven’s care those brave men and women He has called home.”

    “We pray for help in protecting the gift of freedom from those who seek to destroy it, and we ask the Almighty to strengthen all those securing liberty on distant shores,” he concluded.

    Bush asked the people and places of worship in the United States to mark the days of Prayer and Remembrance with “memorial services, the ringing of bells, and evening candlelight remembrance vigils.”

    Post 9-11 unity is a fraud. It lasted about 48 hours, to my recollection. And then they started in on Bush and Cheney.

    Figures Obama would be working in a soup kitchen. He ought to be at a Veteran’s hospital, thanking the troops for all they’ve sacrificed. But when he goes there, his balls shrink just a little bit too much and he feels inadequate next to guys half his age who have more courage and integrity in their pinkies than he could imagine.

    Go hang with your Muslim friends, O. It suits you better than this fake front.

    Soup kitchens! Brought to you by the Obama administration. We were chugging along at 4.5% unemployment, then went into a slight slide that Obama turned into a DEPRESSION and the need for soup kitchens. What a SCFOAMF.

  • Arch

    Obama is in violation of his own 160 page regulation (June 2009) on handling shellfish. Unless he, Michelle and his daughter have been trained, their “service” is illegal.


    These regulations are killing businesses.

    A marine just back from Afghanistan was asked if, after ten years, he could not just forgive these islamists.

    “That’s God’s job; we just arrange the meeting.”

  • Redwine

    He is a truly evil SOB. Period.

  • Patty

    Apparently, Bush says it like no other and Obama never could or ever will.

  • Patty


    the real figures for unemployment are 15% but the media reports only those applying at 9.1% they are not reporting those who have stop looking for jobs and those who are working jobs at a downgrade or part time jobs.

  • PJ

    Check with Michelle, Champ, we’re all obese, last she told us.

  • Patty


    Absolutely, a very great statement. Obama doesn’t think that way. Community Organizer through and through. What is up with Ayers, I wonder where he is slinging out the hash.

  • Nancy

    Apparently our SCOAMF president hasn’t got the courage to place the responsibility for this economic mess where it belongs, any more than he has the guts to blame the Islamicists for 9/11. “Day of Service” my posterior.

    Obama: Let’s Reclaim Post 9-11 Unity …By hanging out with fellow muslims in Soup Kitchens

  • Patty

    And what about Hoffa, is he dishing out some soup. Or dishing out more
    trash and garbage and Profanity.

  • Patty

    don’t forget congress and his party is saying Republicans don’t want jobs for America.

    I think if Obama just stays at the soup Kitchens we would be better off.

  • bg


    shame on US.. :-(

    “we the people” are to blame, not Bush, the MSM et al wouldn’t even let
    him think about 9/11 w/out nailing him to their faux “political cross”.. :-(
