Today we remember those that died willingly and unwillingly on September 11th 2001. We must never forget the cause of this planned attack was radical Islam. It was radical Islamists that flew the planes into the Twin Towers in New York killing more than three thousand. It was radical Islamists that flew the plane into the Pentagon killing almost 200 people. It was radical Islamists that flew the flight 93 into the ground in a field in western Pennsylvania on their way to fly the plane into the Capitol building or White House.
We must also remember the people that died trying to save others in those burning buildings in New York. The bravery of those that were willing to risk their lives to save others is still very breathtaking and awe inspiring to this writer. These attacks have also inspired many young men and women to join the military to fight radical Islam wherever they are. I commend those brave young men and women even as they are scorned by certain allies of the current administration.
Today on September 11th 2009 the world is a different place. We have an administration that has apologized to our enemies and made us weak with talk of compromise for our security. Let us not fail in our duties as Americans to remember what it takes to keep this nation secure which is through strength and vigilance. I pray that we will not suffer another attack on our country but I also pray that Americans come to their senses and reject the weakness and compromise that this administration brings.
