Do you remember?


I know I haven't.

2996 dead at the World Trade Center, Shanksville, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon. For those of you that have forgotten, it happened four years ago today.

I bristle at the whole "PC" crowd when I hear that we should try not to "offend" anyone...

Offend them? I want to kill them! These people we're so afraid of offending are trying everything in their power to kill every last one of us and here we are trying not to offend them.

You know what? I'm offended by that.

Have You Forgotten
Darryl Worley

I hear people saying
We don't need this war

But I say there's some things worth fighting for
What about our freedom and this piece of ground
We didn't get to keep them by backing down
Now they say we don't realize the mess we're getting in
Before you start to preaching let me ask you this my friend

Have you forgotten how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire and her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside going through a living hell
And you say we shouldn't worry about Bin Laden Have you forgotten?

They took all the footage off my TV
They said it's too disturbing for you and me
It'll just breed anger, it's what the experts say
If it was up to me I'd show it everyday
Some say this country's just out looking for a fight
Well after 9-11 man I'd have to say that's right

Have you forgotten how it felt that day?
Too see your homeland under fire and her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside going through a living hell
And we vowed to get the ones behind Bin Laden...
Have you forgotten?

I've been there with the soldiers who've gone away to war
And you can bet that they remember just what they're fighting for
Have you forgotten all the people killed?
Yeah some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field
Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
Yeah all those loved ones that we lost
And those left to carry on
Don't you tell me not to worry about Bin Laden

Have you forgotten how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire and her people blown away?
Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten...
