A Moment of Silence

This blog is paused today to remember the nearly 3,000 men and women who perished in the attacks on the US at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon 9 years ago today.

In the words of FDR, it is a date that will live in infamy. And I will never, ever forget.

And thank you to the brave people who continue to put their life on the line every day in order to protect our country and our freedom.

"It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
-Abraham Lincoln (emphasis mine)
