I really feel that the mosque in New York at ground zero is a slap in the face to all westerners. It is a sad statement about terrorism. The victims are forgotten in the politically correct atmosphere that doesn't allow anyone to criticize Islam without being called a bigot.
I remember the morning of September 11, I hope we all do. Unfortunately, many people seem to prefer to forget that over 3000 totally innocent people lost their lives that day, including many firefighters who were trying to save all those people. I remember the story of the blind person with his seeing eye dog who guided him out to the building. Good puppy!! There were many stories of hero's that day. Without terrorism, we wouldn't need so many heroes!
With the arrests in Canada of terror suspects, it makes me think back to that horrible day, Sept 11.
Does building a mosque fundamentally change a nation? Not usually, but it might this time, as it is a slap in the face to all westerners and especially the over 3000 innocents killed on 9/11.
