The Morning Report - 9/11/19


Good morning kids. Midweek, and that horrible morning, one that I consider the worst day and days of my life, is now 18 years behind us. Looking back on everything we've seen and experienced since makes you shake your head, and your fists. The optimism of the Reagan years and the dismantling of the Soviet Union did not beget a period of national renewal and a blossoming of Americanism and American ideals, but instead gave us a decade of cultural, moral and political depravity. While we were passed out cold in a drunken stupor, drooling and soiling the carpet, a Dark Age cancer that had run wild for close to a thousand years but had been in remission since 1683, and not coincidentally September 12th of that year to be precise, came back with a vengeance. It shoved the puerile notion of "the end of history" into a figurative and literal mass grave.

Then, as we attempted to pick ourselves up and recover, the other nasty consumption which has racked up a body count far exceeding its evil twin and in only a little over a century, erupted from within to try and finish us off for good. And as we can see just by looking at the links in almost any category, the election of Donald Trump and all that he has done and tried to do notwithstanding, the situation is still very much in doubt.

What we can do, and what we must do as we do whenever we commemorate the battles and wars we have fought to preserve and protect what we cherish, is pray for the memory of the fallen, not lose faith when even everything seems hopeless and never surrender the essence of who and what you are. May G-d bless America and consign Islamism and Leftism to the Infernal Reaches. On a personal note, I remember classmate Kathleen M. Moran. RIP.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.
