Eleven years ago today the horrors of war were visited upon this country. Let us never forget what is necessary to protect our citizens and families. Throughout the history of civilization there have always been, and always will be, those who want to take or destroy what others have. The United States of America is the greatest democracy that has ever existed, a beacon of freedom for all to emulate.
Taking the fight overseas to our enemies who wish us harm is not something we seek out but they must know we do not shy away from either. Please take some time today to reflect on the sacrifices that the members of our armed forces make to preserve our rights and freedoms. Always keep in your hearts the loved ones we lost on September 11th, 2001.
