9/11 - Fifth Anniversary

Today is the fifth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the crash of hijacked United Flight 93 in Pennsylvania, which took 3,000 innocent lives.

Although most have moved on, we all surely realize that life has changed since that terrible day. We all should realize that there are those that truly hate us and want us dead. Thankfully, most of us have refused to give into the jihadists and their goal of a frightened acquiescence.

This battle against militant Islam will be long and hard. The unfortunate thing is that many do not understand the enemy. It seems that many are fighting Christian here at home, as if we are the enemy. Our secular elites are either downplaying the threat or are making comparisons between Islamist radicals and politically active Christians.

On a day like this, we ought not only remember what happened but why it happened, recognizing Islamo-fascism for what it is: a deadly and dangerous enemy that wants to destroy us and our way of life.
