|With the 7th anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 just two days away. I hope all fellow Americans take at least a few minutes on this very solemn day to offer thoughts and prayers for those who died and were injured.|
Also, let us all remember the courageous acts by those on this black day . . . along with the so many brave ones who have done so since then.
And sadly yes, among them are those heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice and others whose bodies bare the wounds of serving our great country with pride and honor.They are all valiant reminders for us to remain ever vigilant in our united effort to vanquish those who dare to destroy the USA and our beloved freedoms . . . preventing what they still might wish to accomplish.
I think you will find the essay, September 11, 2001: A Day I Will Never Forget, by Brad Hunter (8th grade) a touching reflection of one who was just six years old at the time. You see . . . even the youngest among us are more aware than we might have thought . . . And isn't our efforts to safeguard America and our way of life really about them . . . so they may carry on for the next generations after them?
In fact, it is the younger adults with many still in their late teens, who have always been there for America when it comes to fighting for Her . . . since her birth and what yet might have to be.
Nor should one's age or disposition be a reason for not doing something for the good of country and your fellow citizens. Spend a few minutes to read President George W. Bush's Discussion on Volunteerism . . . just do so as an American.
One's life should never be too short, busy, or self-absorbed when it comes to preserving all that makes America great!
