Remember 9/11; On this Date, they are Our Families, Too, to Mourn
Today is the 14th Anniversary of 9/11. That year brought a lot of police and firefighter dolls home for Christmas. To top it off, we have the 3 year Anniversary of Benghazi. Sometimes, the world is a mad, sad place. Each year, I try to remember 9/11 in my blogs, and ask my readers to as well. I also remember everyone else who has died for his/her country, and the victims of massacre, horror, and holocaust everywhere. I remember my friends and colleagues in TSA and Homeland Security, who stay in touch and come as guest speakers to my kids who study law and criminal justice, and I say a silent prayer for their safety, on 9/11 and everyday. In times like these, regardless of what everyone else might say about us and our imperfections, I remember in my heart that we still are the land of the free, and the home of the brave, and that while for one nanosecond we were driven out of the sky and to our knees, no one died in vain because the Government by the people, for the people, did NOT perish from the earth. God Bless all of us, and though I wasn't born here, God Bless the United States, my home. Be safe today.
