I didn't expect to write a 9/11 post but, having attended a memorial service this morning, I came away with one thing to say. Some have learned from 9/11 that Islam is America's enemy. That isn't true, and learning that erroneous lesson is the best way to further the cause of the people who killed thousands of Americans (including Muslim Americans) at the WTC, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. They say: "America is Islam's enemy." Don't make them right. America is only the enemy of those strains of Islam corrupted enough to justify murdering thousands.
I've said this once already in a post. Rather than saying it again, I'll just provide the link. It was my case in favor of the so-called Ground Zero Mosque.
I see no point in accepting comments here. If you have something to add, the original post is still open.
I wish you success in making sense of your memories.
