In 2001 this country received a hard awakening when the biggest terrorist attack happened in New York. Do you remember that day? I do. I was in math class at Galaxy Middle School in Deltona, FL. I was 11 years old, and I won’t forget what my history teacher told me.
“Kristian, remember this day because everything that you know so far will change for the better or worse,” he said. I was 11, and I didn’t understand what he meant. One thing I did know was that I wanted to bring the same pain to the people that did this. I kept my promise and joined the Air Force and became a military police and a K9 handler. Think about the last 13 years and how things have changed in airports, culture, and people.

I possess most of those so-called “extremist” qualities. What about you? Are you a so-called “extremist”? Why is Obama doing this? Why is he calling good evil and evil good? Those questions are key to his agenda. Obama is fundamentally changing our way of thinking.
In 2013 Obama said, “We must define our effort not as a boundless ‘global war on terror,’ but rather as a series of persistent, targeted efforts to dismantle specific networks of violent extremists that threaten America.” Who is he talking about here? We noticed that in this administration doesn’t like to use the “T” word at all because God forbid we offend the people that are trying to kill us and kill what America stands for.
What is Terror? After reading The Secure Freedom Strategy: A Plan For Victory over The Global Jihad Movement by The Tiger Team, I learned what terror is and why is the Global Jihad Movement using it: “Terror is the kinetic weapon of choice because it enhances the potential of a successful civilization jihad strategy by making Western/infidel governments more inclined to appease, tolerate and succumb to Jihadist elements.”
We have to call it terrorism is because they cause terror to that city, state, country, and its citizens. The Madrid train bombing was Islamic terrorism, the London subway bombings were Islamic terrorism, the Kenyan mall attack was Islamic terrorism, the Benghazi embassy attack was Islamic terrorism, the Boston bombing and Fort Hood massacre was Islamic terrorism.
As citizens of the United States we have to start to educate ourselves in order to keep our freedom that men and women have fought for over the years. I served in the military for six years and lost two of my fellow brothers in arms, and the least we can do as citizens is to start calling evil by its name.
America has become silent and this country was and is blessed by God to lead the rest of the world. If this country fails and loses the beacon of freedom, the rest of the world will fall. We need to stop with the fear because if we start to fear the terrorist will win.
