Dates of significant events that we are expected to remember.  Today marks the date of the first attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor and yet it seems that a large part of our populace has decided that it’s not worth remembering, that it can’t or won’t happen again.  I’ll never forget the images of that day and the frustration of not being in a position to do anything to help, to fight back.


Please take a minute out of your day to remember what we lost this day.  Pray for the families and friends of those killed in the attacks.  Renew your commitment to do what you can to preserve what we as Americans hold dear.  Our country and government have been involved in constant struggle from the time settlers first set foot on these shores.  They had no guarantees, no entitlements – just the resolve to carve a better life out of the raw material they had at hand.

SJS has a wonderful tribute up and promises updates from the ceremony for the Pentagon Memorial being dedicated today.

Many thanks — just got in from the ceremony and mere words cannot begin to describe it. Will try though after re-composing later today and after my time in the memorial itself…
