Remembering 9/11 six years later

Posted By on September 11, 2007

Remembering 911I would be remiss in not mentioning 9/11 as the United States remembers the 6th anniversary of the attack on America. In many areas of our country, there were 4 pauses for reflection in silence today. In my moment of silence, I recalled that terrible day as I was getting my son off to school. Thinking of him (and my daughter) I gave thanks for their safety before praying for the many families suffering loss. Moments and images came alive again as I watch a few clips on the television from that day. Hopefully remembering such a brutal attack will give our nation and its citizens resolve to diligently secure our country while pursuing al-Qaeda and those advocating terrorism around the world. My thanks to all those who serve and have served the call of our United States; you are the nation’s true patriots.

EDIT 9/11/2007 PM: Since I watched a few short segments today of those speaking to General Petraus who briefed congress on the situation in Iraq, I thought I would include remarks from Sen. John McCain — he could not have been more clear. Well stated.

    Amazing how one man speaking so clearly can change my thoughts on this Iraq thing. Thanks for including it. (I like the photo above)
