It’s hard to believe it’s now been 15 years since the 9/11 attack on America, focusing on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon. How time flies. Put into perspective, it’s now the same number of years between the attack and now, as between 1986 and the attack. Life keeps going, thank God, but we must never forget the sacrifice thousands of our fellow Americans made that day, and the massive number of Americans that have made sacrifices before and since, particularly our military personnel and their families who love them.

There’s a lot to remember, but we must. We must remember the people in those buildings (WTC and Pentagon), the people in the Pentagon, the people in the planes, our firefighters and police officers, their respective families, and our warfighters who’ve chosen to fight and protect the rest of us, our country, our freedom and liberty, and our way of life, our CULTURE. These are incredibly brave men and women. Many have been lost, many have been severely injured, and many are still serving and protecting us.

Anyway, I’m just incredibly grateful to be an American citizen, and to have the opportunity to do what I do. It’s because of them, and all those who preceded them, including the Greatest Generation, and back, and back. It’s an honor and privilege to live in this great country. Let’s all protect and nurture it, like we should, like our Founding Fathers hoped we would.

God bless this great country. God bless America.
