Seeking God again

Faith-based musings from a decidedly Biblical Protestant point of view, on just about everything, including Bogus Bibles, New Age Deceptions, Corrupt Politics and other signs of the Last Days before the World ends.
We've forgotten the shock and the patriotic fury Americans felt on that bright September morning eight years ago. We've forgotten our identification with fellow citizens leaping from doomed skyscrapers. We've forgotten the courage of airline passengers who would not surrender to terror.Well, really, all this is true. It's really quite amazing to consider just how far we have gone toward capitulating to this enemy that attacked us, just how lacking in will and determination we've been in the face of such a threat, and how strange it is that Islam is growing in popularity since 9/11.
We've forgotten the men and women who burned to death or suffocated in the Pentagon. We've forgotten our promises, our vows, our commitments.
We've forgotten what we owe our dead and what we owe our children. We've even forgotten who attacked us.
We have betrayed the memory of our dead. In doing so, we betrayed ourselves and our country. Our troops continue to fight -- when they're allowed to do so -- but our politicians have surrendered.
Are we willing to let the terrorists win?
I still remember the day with a heavy heart, and I pray that as a nation we will do whatever it takes to prevent something like this from happening again.Well, "whatever it takes" is repentance, and for the nation itself to repent not every single citizen has to engage in it, but it should be an observance called by the leader of the nation. Past Presidents have done this on behalf of the nation in times of danger, before sending our troops to war for instance. A day of fasting for our sins as a nation, acknowledging them to Him, with prayer for forgiveness and protection.
