It's The Day

Here I am just a relatively few miles from Ground Zero 9/11/2001. While I am sure there is long screed, or hundreds even, out there on the tubes let's just say it in as simple as terms as possible.

We honor the sacrifice made by everyone that horrible day, whether intentional or not. The firefighters, police and others who charged the scene in an effort to save the innocent victims deserve our highest honor and the people who were caught and died while just going about their everyday lives are to be equally honored.

The great shame brought to our country should also not be forgotten. Those people who squandered the great opportunity to bring our country together by cheapening the disaster and wrapping themselves in the flag and using 9/11 to further their misbegotten political and greed driven goals are traitors to all that has made this a great country. It has brought our country to a new low and is a great tragedy, not unlike the terrorist attack itself.
