#62 A Modest Proposal

“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” ~ Winston Churchill

I’ve had an epiphany. Lightning has struck my brain. Last night I was working on two columns about this week (be patient, they’re coming!) when I got an idea. I thought I would run it by my readers, and if you like it, then pass it on to others. Not like one of those stupid Email chain letters, but just a good idea that needs to be shared.

Follow the Logic with me:

1. According to President Bush, when highjackers flew two planes into the World Trade Center, that constituted an act of war. Therefore, since that moment, be have been in wartime. More on this in a minute.

2. Now, after the WTC disaster, United Flight #93 left Newark, NJ bound for San Francisco. Only, it never got there. Highjackers took control of this plane as well, and according to the Secretary of Defense, the target was either the White House, or Air Force 1, the plane that carries the president.

3. We know that Flight #93 did not hit its target, but instead crashed in Pennsylvania.

Let’s back up a minute. Several people made cell phone calls to loved ones from that flight. The passengers were aware of what happened to the WTC and that something bad was going to happen to them. Armed with this information, the passengers decided to confront the highjackers and take back control of the plane. Now, let’s go back to point 3. The plane did not hit its target. For any of you slow on the uptake, let me put this together for you: Logically, the passengers of Flight #93 stopped the Highjackers from committing mass destruction, at a cost of their own lives. Now let’s go back to point 1. At the time of Flight 93’s crash, we were in wartime. In wartime, the rules change, and even civilians can become soldiers with the duty to protect the country. We have an award for a soldier who exhibits incredible bravery in the face of danger. It’s called the Congressional Medal of Honor, and there is no higher honor in this country. I hereby nominate the passengers of Flight #93 for the Congressional Medal of Honor.

In a time of War, they sacrificed their lives to save fellow human beings, to save their president, to save America. If this sounds good to you let me know, and we’ll write every newspaper in this country and make this happen.

Thanks for your consideration.
