Never Forget !

As the years pass since this vicious attack on all that is America ... we tend to forget a little more each year ... we tend to lose the passion and outrage we felt that day ...

It is this growing apathy that will be our undoing if we don’t keep that memory in our hearts, and vow to work to keep our country safe from our enemies so this never happens again ... and to hold in our hearts the memories of those who were murdered that day ... This weekend take time to reflect on this horrible event and to remember those who died ... and those who still hate us and still wish to destroy us. We cannot forget.
