It has been four years, yet a seeming lifetime, since the tragic day of the first attack on the US since Pearl Harbor. We think back and feel the pain and confusion of that day, yet perhaps we’ve lost a little bit of that determination that resulted from it. Our lives continue on, day by day without much change in the routine. Even yet, the majority of americans, though affected by Hurricane Katrina, go about their daily lives without fear of being killed by some random attack. This is a testimony to the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting us. We cannot express our thanks to them nearly enough.
May we never forget. Ever vigilant. Ever free.
