Yes, I know what is supposed to be Short Attention Span Theater and the announcement of Monday's winner should be here, however, today marks the 12th anniversary of the terrorists' attacks on this country.
Having served in the military and been given the chance to see other places in the world, I gained an early appreciation for what it means to live here. So, today, don't be a Democrat or a Republican...just be an American.

2,977 of your fellow citizens left for work this morning 12 years ago. They had no idea it was to be the last time that they saw their loved ones. Do not take anything for granted. We squander so much time on petty things that we can forget what it means to live and love.
