Bad memories this morning.
Like most Californians, I will still in bed asleep as most of the days events took place 9 years ago today.
The South Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed at 10am Eastern, which was 7am Pacific.
Most of us on the West Coast were just getting out of bed.
A friend of mine called from the Midwest to tell me that one of the World Trade centers was gone.
It seemed like a ridiculous statement ...until I turned on the TV.
Over 3,000 Americans would die that day, all because of fanatical Muslims.
Islam is a violent and dangerous religion which has been a threat to world peace for over 1,400 years.
It is a religion which allows women be treated like possessions, and like cattle.
It is a religion that allows adult men to marry children.
It is a religion that preaches death and destruction. Those who abandon the Islamic faith are to be killed.
That is a standing order in Islam.
Muslims are savages.
They stone people to death.
They amputate peoples hands.
In Saudia Arabia, they have "Chop Chop Square" , where they publicly execute people by chopping their heads off with a sword. They invite people to watch.
We must remain alert of the threats we face.
I will leave you with this quote from Andrew Jackson...one of my favorite Presidents.
"But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government." -- Andrew Jackson, Farewell Address, March 4, 1837
