Remembering 9/11...

"Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward - and freedom will be defended!" President George W. Bush, September 11, 2001

As the tenth anniversary of this insidious incident approaches, an event that rocked the foundations of our previously "secure" world, I, like many of you, still struggle to put this into perspective,to understand what has happened - and why...

Think about people like Jose Bonilla, New York City. In the last decade, he has helped to wage a war, had two children, and has been employed with crews helping to rebuild the soaring skyscraper that will soon tower over the ashes of the old Trade Center. When he looks back at the transformation he has seen since 9/11, he sees rebirth. It's like a phoenix rising up from the ashes, he says.

Think about those who have lost their loved ones in this tragedy, thousands of our friends and neighbors whose lives have forever changed.

While some of us have by now been lulled into a false sense of security and complacency, think again...

Never forget those who have sacrificed their lives for all that we believe in, for those who continue to fight to protect our country and our rights.

May God Bless America!!

Please stay tuned and stay in touch.
