This convention has really made me miss Barbara Olson (Weepy VANITY)
Hispanarepublicana | 9/2/04 | Hispanarepublicana

Posted on 09/02/2004 2:05:25 PM PDT by hispanarepublicana

Forgive for the vanity, but this morning I really started thinking about what Barbara Olson's reaction would have been to Zell Miller's speech last night as well as the speeches of Rudy Giuliani and Gov. Schwarzenneger. Boy, do I miss her!

It reminded me just how horrible the events on September 11 were and how we must continue to fight this war on terror.

I think it would do her memory a proper honor for all of us to pause and think of her for a moment.



TOPICS: Culture/Society; Politics/Elections; War on Terror
KEYWORDS: bko; olson
I don't post many vanities, but I hope you'll indulge me in memory of a former FReeper.

Thanks for that! Barbara was a peach and is greatly missed by many of us. I only wish we had better pictures of her.

I still have a thank you note Freepmail from Barbara that she sent me 1 day shy of 3 months before 9/11.

I refuse to delete it.

Having a monent of silence for Barbara and her family.How can people forget her and the other victims of 9/11,those of Israel,and around the world, so soon,and not want to do EVERYthing possible to stop the terrorists? How can they not see that George W Bush is the man to do it,the man who is doing it? I really and truly believe that many on the left ARE putting their self-interest and special intersts,no matter how petty in the scheme of things,above national security,which is tantamount in my opinion to blithely dismissing that horrible day and all the victims then,before,and since. How selfish can they be?

Funny thing, I was thinking of her today too. I keep a picture and note from Ted that he sent after I sent a condolence card. We owe her (and him) so much. God Bless The America so many have died for!

Many, many thanks for reminding us of that gracious & beautiful friend. How is Ted? I haven't seen or heard anything of him in a long time.

Thank you for this post. I had no idea that others had had the same longings.

Remembering her and the pilot of her plane, a neighbor of ours.

Why'd you have to go and make me cry?

She was such a voice of sanity. She could hold her own with any leftie and still be gracious and beautiful. I have a lot of questions to ask God one day and this is one of them.

She's the best. I always loved it when she'd get in heated discussions and she would end it with a smile. Whenever I surfed around those talking head shows I'd always stop and listen to her.

He's returned to his law practice in D.C. late last month.

Barbara Olson. Yes, I remember her as well as many other people who died on 9/11. But I remember, most of all, a little girl who was either on her way to visit her grandparents or on her way home to her Mom and Dad. She died on the plane that went down in Pennsylvania. She was only about five years old. Now Muslim terrorists in Russia are willing to kill more children. President Bush is willing to go after terrorists. Senator Kerry is willing to be "sensitive" to the WOT. Tell that, Senator Kerry to Barbara Olson, the little girl and 3000 other people who died on American soil on 9/11.
