9/11 Let us never forget, nor let us allow it to happen again

On September 11th, 2001 our Nation, our way of life and every one of us was attacked by terrorists. We lost countless numbers of our loved ones, our friends and neighbors. Firefighters & Police lost our extended brothers and sisters in our battle against an unknown foe. The eyes our our Nation were opened to the unspeakable. We watched Firefighters and Police from across the country & the world pull together and search for fallen comrades. We mourned, we got angry and our Country fought back. We are still sacrificing lives in this battle both on foreign soil and here at home. Our soldiers are dying daily, and responders to the Tower disaster are dying from cancer.

Our Politicians are forgetting about those on the home soil and have gone back to the budget cuts and lowering of security. Again we become complacent, again the big dog is laying down to sleep. What have we learned since 9/11? What have we done to prevent another terrorist event?

Some of us will never forget... some already have.

the saddest part is that after 9-11 there were so many flags, I dont see them as much anymore, the flags, like the memories, stored away until another terrible event again wakes the big dog. does each generation need a "wake up call?" and when will we learn that the alarm clock that does it costs lives.... the next one could be yours!
