But this article is not about me.
- It is about remembering their lives and the cruel circumstances of their deaths.
- It is about remembering the brave heroes of Flight 93 who stood up for themselves and showed what a true free American is.
- It is about the men and women of the American military (all branches) that have fought and died since then to stop any further attacks from happening.
- And it is about the men and woman who have done countless missions and activities layered in classification and secrecy we will never know about but have also stopped major death and destruction from being wrought on America and Americans.
In 2009, September 11 falls on a Friday.
As you go about your weekend activities having fun and being with your friends & family, please take a moment and remember the 3,000 American civilians who did not go home on 9/11/01 to their families and friends. Remember those men and women whose lives were stolen from them by Islamic religious zealots (yes I said it! If you don't like that, screw off!) who took pleasure and delight in casually putting out the lives of unarmed, undefended civilians.
And remember the heroic men and women of the American military who have volunteered their lives to protect you and me and out families, sometimes at the cost of their own lives. No comic book character could ever be more "super" than the American soldier.
Do not let the images and video of that day fade into just a few pages in some history books!
