Oh my God! I am so freaking angry and simultaneously sad right now! I feel almost exactly the same as I did just over 11 years ago on that warm September morning in 2001. The only difference today is that I know there are far fewer casualties this time around, so fewer people are feeling the very personal, heart wrenching pain than did back then.
I cannot help but empathize with the parents who lost their 8 year old son, as one of my sons is the same age. I cannot imagine what they are going through. I just read a story on Fox News (Fox News story here) about that kid, and it ripped my heart out. Reading that story brought me to tears, but those tears quickly turned to anger.
I wish, with all my heart, that I could be there in Boston to help somehow. I truly wish I could be involved in finding the CHICKEN S*** SCUMBAG M-F’ERS that did this, and put some serious hurt on them. I know I am not alone in these feelings, as several of my coworkers and I spoke about this last night while we are all stuck here, thousands of miles away, feeling useless. I can only imagine how our soldiers overseas feel right now.
The saddest part as I see it, because it truly affects all of us, is that while I have all the faith in the world in my brothers in blue back in Boston, and in the excellent investigative abilities of the FBI, I have ABSOLUTELY ZERO faith in the resolve of Obama to see this through. Drawing the comparison between the Boston bombings and with his mishandling of Benghazi is all too easy.
Eleven years ago, Bush brought this country together, and even the people who did not like him, were with him in the hour of our country’s need. Obama does not instill those feelings in anyone. Even when incidents like this happen, his words and actions divide us rather than bring us together. Obama is worthless and he is destroying this country!
Peace through strength worked, and worked well for many decades. We can see where peace through placating is taking us, and I do not want to go there. Time to turn this ship around and once again be the country that I fondly remember.
