This morning I am watching Fox News' coverage of the horrid attacks that we survived on Sept. 11, 2001. I am trying to write this through tear filled eyes as I listen to them recount the names of the casualties of the World Trade Center attack. Every year, I've tried very hard to remember this day, to never make it just another day. Once again, I will try to do honor to those that died and those that willingly sacrificed themselves in a Pennsilvania field to keep the terrorists from succeeding in another attack. God bless those patriotic warriors that retook flight 93 and crashed it in an open field instead of the Whitehouse as was thought to be the planned target.
As I relive in my mind the thoughts and emotions that I felt, I am forced to look at the state of America and the changes that have taken place in our society since that day. I am trying very hard to keep my anger in check for those that have willingly forgotten these sacrifices. We must always be mindful that we have enemies that hate us and want to attack us for no other reason than that we live a life that they can only dream of. They harbor venom and bile in their hearts and will strike out at us. These must be hunted, they must be found, confronted, and finally destroyed. We must be true to those that have gone before and given their all.
I would like to bring it home to you, my friends that we must renew our resolve to destroy those that would mean us harm. We must resolve ourselves to support those troops and members of our intelligence community that have kept us from further attacks over the last 8 years. We owe them a debt that we cannot repay. Let us not take them for granted and let us not persecute those who have done that which had to be done to keep us from more death here and abroad.
