The dominant media is trying to get us to look at Sept. 11 as a day of mourning for the great American “tragedy” which occurred.

I think that is all wrong. It wasn’t a tragedy. It was an attack on our country. This is what I think we should do:

First, wake up on September 11th [angry]! I mean really [angry]. Remember America was attacked. We don’t care why. We were attacked.

Say a prayer for all your fellow Americans, our country, our president, our brave military personnel and, of course, those who died on September 11th and their families.

Fly a flag proudly.

Next, most importantly, go about your regular life with more energy than ever before. Work harder at work, play harder at play, and study harder at school, do whatever you want, but give it 110%.

God bless America.
