"Have You Forgotten"
Written by Darryl Worley and Wynn Varble
Have you forgotten how it felt that day
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside
Going through a living hell
And you say we shouldn't worry 'bout Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?
I received an email from a friend of mine today; I won't use his name. But he's serving right now in Iraq. You know what the email was full of? Hope, pride for serving his country. He doesn't want to be there, would you? He has family and friends who love him and would rather have him here than there.
America, we forget way too easy. Do you know how bullies gain power? Because people will cower away from them, just hoping they will go away or that someone else will deal with them.
War should only be used as a last resort. Well after 9-11, I'm not real sure America had any options left. We were not the first to be attacked - Israel lives with attacks almost daily. We are not going to be the last - Spain and England should be proof enough for that. But if we let our guard down even just a little we will be attacked again.
Now I'm fixin' to say something that may upset some people so I want to set the record straight right now. As Americans it is our right and our responsibility to question our government every step of the way. The minute we stop will be the minute we lose every freedom we hold dear.
So with that being said, if you disagree with what I've just said, please by all means voice your concerns, write to your congressmen. Good men have died to ensure your freedom. Heck take your frustrations out on me, yell at me, curse me out. Because right now I've just turned my speakers up and all I hear is: Have you forgotten?
Well have you?
