God Bless America. God has blessed America. I have trouble with those statements sometimes, or rather those statements are troubling. Troubling because I think of those who are less fortunate, those in third world countries, those who are starving. But we must remember that though there are many who can point to what they believe is wrong with America or even the hypocrisy of America, that America has been a great force for good in this world. America has no equal in terms of compassion.
On the homefront, on this day we should remember all those who lost their lives seven years ago. All those caught unawares and all those who sacrificed all because they felt that there job was more than just a duty, it was an obligation.
For all those who serve this country, from community organizers to all those in the armed forces, I salute and thank you.
For a list of all those who lost their lives on 9/11/01 Go Here, Thanks Duane
