FOR "PETES" SAKESubmitted by Ignoranceiscurable on Thu, 09/11/2008 - 20:37
My childhood friend Peter "Pete" Moutos was killed in the "collapse" of WTC, 7 years ago today. He was a little older than me, so I always looked up to him.
You could not have met a more generous,gracious person. He was always upbeat, jovial, and had one of those personalities that was like a warm fire on a cold day.
Pete was a very ambitious person. He had almost every day of his life (until retirement) planned out in one of those day planners (before blackberrys). Yes,we thought this was a little OCD,but he was one of those people that wanted to get the most out of every day of his life.
He worked his way from a small city in Texas, to being a Systems Consultant for Marsh & McClennan in the WTC. His family was very proud of his accomplishments,and spoke of him often,as proud Greek parents do about their children.
His life was snuffed out,unnecessarily on 9/11. His family was shattered. We have STILL not received all the answers of what actually happened . NO one, has been held accountable for for the ineptitude or what ever took place on that fateful day.
I promise,that I will never cease in this struggle, searching for the truth. He and his family as well as 3000 other families deserve answers,and not the BS we have been shoveled so far.
I promise that I will never forget,and just go away into the night. I promise I will fight until we get a proper investigation, and the ones responsible are brought to justice.
If we are to restore our Constitutional Govt,we need to understand and heal from the wound of 9/11.
As I watched the Ceremonies this morning,I got the same feeling I had when I watched Bush in the classroom that day. You could see his guilt,and his attempt at fake remorse. You could see the cold calculating ways of Rumsfeld,and Rice,who have much better "poker faces" than Bush. They looked like a dog that had been dragged back to the carpet they had shit on,and looked as though they wanted to get out of there as fast as possible.
I don't know WHO was behind 9/11. I don't know exactly how it went down. But I have seen the agenda taking place in the Middle East,and the Caspean region, and I can understand how 9/11 was used as "a new Pearl Harbor".
For Petes' sake, and for the sake of 3000 other innocents and their shattered families,as well as the 5000 plus servicemen and women,and the million plus Iraqi and Afghani families lives who've changed since 9/11,don't ever stop questioning this event.
Don't ever let others make you feel less patriotic, for questioning authority. True patriotism DEMANDS debate,and dissent.
