Five years ago, today, in fact at just about this time, over 3000 Americans, Canadians, Britons and citizens of many other countries were brutally murdered. Like the day Kennedy was shot, or the day of the moon landing, millions will remember where they were on that infamous date.
As we watched that horrid event on television we had it confirmed that there are and always will be the type of men who willingly kill innocents; who willingly man the gates at Aushwitz; who willingly walk into a crowded room and blow themselves to pieces; who willingly do these and those other things that civilized men and women would never do. And to make it worse, if worse it could be made, they do it in the name of a perverted religion that says that if you do not bow down before their ‘god’ you must be killed.
If we have no other single thing to remember from that terrible day; if we have learned nothing but one lesson from those 3000 let it be that the name given to that event; “9-11” , is a rallying cry to all of us; that we must be ever vigilant; that our freedom and safety are not things that have no price.
God bless America, Canada, England and all the other countries and peoples who daily fight those forces of evil so that we all may live in peace and safety. God save and protect those fighting for us in Iraq and Afghanistan.
