“I hope that when you’re my age you’ll be able to say, as I have been able to say: we lived in freedom, we lived lives that were a statement, not an apology.” – Ronald Reagan
I want to add my sentiments to those being expressed the world over. My heart still breaks for the lives that were lost ten years ago as well as for the lives that have been lost since the attacks. I don’t want to even think about the number of men and women from the USA as well as her allies in the War on Terrorism. I have a feeling the number would be a far higher one than any of us can really deal with.
I want to thank, from the bottom of my heart, the brave men and women in the military who defend out country at home and abroad. I also want to acknowledge and thank all of the equally brave men and women who serve in the police department, FBI, Homeland Security, and fire department. These people deserve our respect as much as the heroes and heroines in our military.
Putting your life on the line for others… including people you’ll never meet? Incredibly awesome.
