Sept. 11, 2001, is an event that is etched into the minds and hearts of all Americans, and indeed many citizens around the world. As the nation paused on the 18th anniversary of that fateful day, President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump attended a solemn ceremony at the Pentagon to honor the almost 3,000 who lost their lives in the deadliest attack on American soil. President Trump said, “For every American who lived through that day, the September 11 attack is seared into our soul,” adding, “It was a day filled with shock, horror, sorrow and righteous fury,” reported Fox News.
He continued, “For the families who join us, this is your anniversary of personal and permanent loss. It’s the day that has replayed in your memory a thousand times over the last kiss, the last phone call, the last time hearing those precious words ‘I love you’.”
Meanwhile, at ground zero, during a ceremony where the victims of the 9/11 names were read out by Nicholas Haros Jr., he reprimanded Democrat Ilhan Omar, the freshman congresswoman, who, as a member of “the Squad ” earlier in the year made those infamous remarks that the 9/11 attack had been just “some people did something.”
“Some people did something” – freshman congresswoman from Minnesota criticized at Sept. 11 MemorialToday marks the 18th anniversary of the 9 11 terror attacks on the Twin towers in New York City, the Pentagon, and Shanksville Pennsylvania. Nearly 3000 civilian deaths on that day, on American Soil and more than 6000 others injured. Our fight to vindicate those lost continue till today, with nearly 7000 US Military casualties and more than 52 thousand wounded. America was united on that day, but something happened since then. America is no longer united. We are more divided than ever before. Politics has invaded every aspect of our society. And it seems that in the name of diversity, some of our votes have allowed those who do not respect the sacrifices from that day. In New your city, every year since that tragic day, Survivors have read the names and honored family members lost. Nicholas Haros Jr. took seized the moment to remind us all that sitting in the great halls of congress, some may not understand or even care about the meaning of this day. Watch

Haros Jr. who lost his 76-year-old mom Frances on that fateful day was sporting a black T-shirt with Omar’s words displayed across the front. Addressing the crowd of friends and families of those who had perished, he said as reported by Fox News, “Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom,”
“Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?” He continued: “On that day 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al-Qaeda, killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage. Is that clear?
But as to whom? I was attacked. Your relatives and friends were attacked,” Haros Jr. said, looking around.
“Our constitutional freedoms were attacked and our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles was attacked.” He added: “That’s what some people did,” concluding, “Got that now? We are here today congresswoman to tell you and the Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) sent out a tweet around the time Haros Jr. was at the ceremony, but it isn’t clear whether she was responding to him. “September 11th was an attack on all of us,” she wrote. “We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil. I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget”
Omar’s comments of “some people did something,” were made on March 23, at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, when she said, “Here’s the truth: Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” she said. “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
