PODCAST: Do We Really Remember? | MONDAY MORNING ROLL CALL | Episode 027

Do We Really Remember? | MONDAY MORNING ROLL CALL | Episode 027

LISTEN NOW

Monday Morning Roll Call is released every week by On The Blue Line and provides a short overview of issues that matter to you and provides encouragement for the week ahead.

In this episode we discuss:

  • September 11 passed this last week, where we looked back and remembered the tragic events of September 11, 2001. However, only a few days later we find ourselves asking, do we really remember? Did we truly “never forget?” When we consider our daily actions, our politics, what we say we stand for in this country, we find ourselves asking, Have we forgotten? 
  • We mention the song, Imagine, by John Lennon. 
  • We mention Democratic Candidate Beto O’rourke’s comments at the Democratic Debate September 2019. 
  • Lastly, we read a beautiful, moving poem by Lt. Dan Marcou, called, That Day in September. This work outlines not only the unfolding of the tragic events on that fateful morning, but it truly honors and remembers those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. 

We want to say thank you and remember all those who run towards danger in the service of others, no matter the cost, no matter the stakes- you are the true heroes!
