What Everyone Is Watching

Irma. The hurricane battered the Florida Keys on Sunday morning before crashing into Marco Island on Sunday afternoon. By the evening, winds of 100 mph were hitting Sarasota and Tampa. The cyclone has spawned tornadoes, with parts of Georgia also under tornado watch. Hurricane Irma has already broken several records, including: strongest Atlantic basin hurricane; longest-lasting Category 5 hurricane; longest sustained winds of 185 mph or above; largest evacuation in the history of the Bahamas, and potentially the largest in the U.S.

    I refuse to spend the rest of my life stuck back in 2001. I honor every first responder yet I watch Congress and the Presidents deny their future health care benefits and continue to act in ways which are likely to insure future attacks if that's what 9/11 was in truth. I'll be spending the day hoping we could learn something positive from the past three weeks and move on as a better, more humble nation.

    911 was planned by Americans to further the agenda of the military industrial complex. This American will never forget. God bless America. And god damn the government.

    9/11 should have a much greater visibility even when hurricanes are bearing down. It is a disgrace to the memory of those lost. I am ashamed of the lack of mention by the media and even Google sports only a small black ribbon with no hyperlink.
