on 9/11

I hate talking about or even listening to anything related to or regarding politics...but I feel the surprising urge to make a comment.

I think its fair to say that most of us don't like war, especially when our loved ones are fighting and perhaps dying or getting injured in that God-forsaken place. But as I recall, the US does not have a draft in effect and I can only assume that none of our brave soldiers had a gun to their heads when they signed up to serve their country. They have volunteered and I'm sure knew of the possible consequences in doing so.

Aside from all the conspiracy theories, the political correctness, leftist anti-war / anti-Bush campaigns.....let's not forget what caused this in the first place:

Overview of Ground Zero

"Falling Man" - One of dozens of people who chose to jump from the buildings, because of the unbearable smoke and heat/flames. Put yourself in that position for a nanosecond - either suffocate from the dense smoke or burn in the flames or take a last deep breath of fresh air as you plunge to your death.

This is the best country on our planet. Let's not be fooled into thinking that they don't have groups still planning the destruction of our country, of our way of life, of our liberties and freedom to express ourselves as we choose.

God Bless America
