That is the weather forecast for tomorrow. Brilliant sunshine, mid-70s, warm and dry. An absolutely perfect day. As was another Tuesday, on the 11th of September. I remember walking into work on that terrible day at around 7 am, thinking what a glorious day it was, a wonderful day to be alive. Until men filled with the hate of their beliefs killed three thousand of our countrymen in the name of their religion.
May those hate-filled men burn for eternity in their own special hell. And may there be a hell also for those around the world who cheered and celebrated the murder of the innocent on that day. The anger I feel in my heart has not much subsided. I doubt it will. I have become as tolerant of Islam as Islam is of me. If one who professes that faith wishes to live peaceably next to me, then we shall live in peace. If any who profess that faith demand either my conversion to their faith or death as an infidel, then death is what they deserve. Not because of their religion, but because of their desire to punish me or forbid me mine. As Marine General Kelly so eloquently stated,
It is not about the god you worship, if you worship any god at all; but you will respect the right of your neighbor to respect the god he or she damn well pleases.
