Gratitude.

This nation lacks it in the extreme. We have since before the Vietnam War.

Actually, let me clarify that: the far left--the ones that actually run this country--lacks gratitude toward those that protect their rights to denigrate and insult anyone and everyone that doesn't bow the knee to their superiority.

That, more than anything, is going to be what breaks this country. Not the action that happened ten years ago today, not the ongoing military response to that action, but the far left's contempt for the people that make the bedrock of this country: the soldiers, the emergency first responders, the average Joes and Janes that work 40 hours a week to support the government's spending habits.

They have forgotten the heroes in their rush to beatify the victims of that horrific attack.

We have not.

That division is more sure to be the end of our nation than the threat of radical Islam.

  1. Yes. This.

    I think of the Bible verse about not muzzling a working ox: if a person isn't going to help someone who's doing the hard things, at the very least they can get out of that person's way.

  2. Would be nice, wouldn't it? My other half wrote a bit about that:

    An interesting thing is that, last May, when FEMA arrived, they didn't find a whole lot of people screaming for help and government money--they found people helping each other, and telling FEMA to get out of the way and go find someone that needed them.

    Really put their noses out of joint.
