It was fifteen years ago that we were viciously attacked by homicidal, Islamic trivialists. They are hell-bent on destroying our way of life and killed over 3,000 people that day. We must never forget that day and its meaning.
Now, I am one who doesn’t normally complain about commercialization. However, this year it appears some retailers are trying to turn 9/11 into Memorial Day or Labor Day with sales. Those attempts are wrong, gross, and vile.
These are just a couple of examples. There is a Wal-Mart in Florida stacked their Coke products like the twin towers for a sale, a mattress store in San Antonio stacked mattresses like the twin towers in their two for one sale, and I’m sure there are others.
9/11 is a somber holiday to remember those lost, why we were attacked, and why we must remain the beacon of liberty is NOT the day to commercialize. Don’t you think?
Tune in to The Ethan Bearman Show Monday through Friday from noon to 2 p.m. on KGO 810 – www.kgoradio.com
EDIT 9/9/16 10:33 PDT – If you are wondering about the word “trivialists”: Pastor Rene Schlaepfer from Twin Lakes Church used that term on my KGO 810 show in reference to religious “extremists”. He said they aren’t extremists, they are trivialists because they focus on trivia in the religious texts, not the big picture message of love.

On this 237th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, enjoy time with your family , your loved ones, your friends, your neighbors, and be thankful for our freedoms. Look around the world and you will quickly see we are still the beacon of liberty and freedom. And reflect on these words as written by our brave forebears:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
