Remembering 9-11, 8 Years Later
Washington, Sep 10, 2009 - The horrific events of 9-11 were not the result of a natural occurrence but rather those of despicable terrorist acts that resulted in tremendous loss of innocent life on American soil. Unfortunately, 9-11 happened because people made poor decisions and bad policies were put in place leading up to the terrible events of that day. We need to commit ourselves to prevent any future 9-11s by acting responsibly and courageously to protect our people and to insist that our government not befriend gangster and criminal regimes like that of the Taliban in the 1990s.
Unfortunately, we are still at war with the radical Islamic elements who slaughtered over 3000 of our fellow Americans on 9-11. Until we have completely eliminated this threat we have not done justice to those who died on that day.
On this day of remembrance, we should look back and pay our respects to those who lost their lives. As Americans, we need to recommit ourselves to those who are fighting our radical Islamic enemies now and look forward to a world in which Muslims, Christians, Jews and people of all faiths can live together in freedom, peace and security.
