No one will say this, but on #911Anniversary, #NeverForget that we are still in two wars in #Afghanistan and #Iraq that were begun because of that horrific attack on our country.

These are the longest wars in US history.

2M Americans have been wounded. Thousands have died.
1/
The sacrifices made by the same men and women, over and over, the same members of our volunteer army, have continued through three presidencies.

We never talk about it.

Not even on #911Day.

#NeverForget these men and women are trapped in unending war because of 9/11.
2/
#NeverForget on this #911Anniversary that the folks in Washington do not care about our military or their families.

They have refused care for the men and women fighting these endless 9/11 wars 17 years later. Thousands of vets are homeless.

3/
#NeverForget the thousands of innocent civilians who have been killed by Americans during the wars in #Aghanistan and #Iraq as a consequence of 9/11.

#NeverForget we tortured people because of 9/11, contravening the Geneva Convention.

4/
#NeverForget that right now there are soldiers fighting in #Afghanistan and #Iraq and some of them were toddlers when 9/11 happened and others were teenagers.

#911Anniversary
5/
#NeverForget that we traded away our privacy with the #PatriotAct, which was supposed to be temporary, but is now permanent.

#NeverForget the 9/11 attack never ended because the wars in #Afghanistan and #Iraq are still being waged.

6/
#NeverForget Muslim Americans are still viewed with suspicion & treated disrespectfully because of 9/11.

#NeverForget that mosques have been attacked because of 9/11 and hate crimes against Muslims are common because of 9/11

#NeverForget American Muslims are NOT terrorists.

7/
#NeverForget on this #911Anniversary that the solemnity of this day is about many things--many losses, many lives--and that going forward, we must remember what it is we are fighting FOR, not just what we are fighting AGAINST.

#NeverForget
