There were so many brave people that day who risked their lives to save others and in the case of some of New York City's finest ended up giving their own lives in the Towers when they fell. We will never forget those whose lives were taken or injured and their families on September 11, 2001.
Time for political leaders to think twice before sending American troops into harm's way into places like Iran or Syria. We are still in Korea after all these years and expect to have advisers in Afghanistan for years to come but at least the main part of our troops will be coming home in 2014. Saber rattling needs to stop and the people who want to keep sending our troops into new wars defeated on November 6, 2012.
Over the years the Baby Boomer Generation has lost Dads, Moms, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and friends to wars since I was a young teenager. Some who survived their wounds came home to a VA systems that has been inadequate in so many ways. There are not enough facilities and medical personnel to take of all of our veterans today. Those who are disabled need to be first in line and deserve the best treatment money can buy.
On the 11th Anniversary of the foreign terrorists attacks on America, time for all of us to give thanks to those men and women who serving around the world today to preserve our freedoms.
