Good Afternoon Americans:

Tomorrow, as almost every American knows, we will be noting the Tenth Anniversary of the horrible events of September 11, 2001.

I recall in vivid detail my wife calling me to the television and telling me that an Aircraft had just struck the World Trade Center. As I sat there in horror and in an effort to comprehend what I was seeing, As I , at that point, assumed that somehow there had been a tragic error by the Pilot of a commercial Aircraft, I saw yet another large aircraft flying directly toward the second tower of the World Trade center, and then unbelievably, strike the building with a tremendous explosion and gout of fire.

I was still trying to focus a reasonable mindset on the events that I had just witnessed, and at the same time gradually becoming aware that no reasonable mind could adequately grasp the full implications of this horrible event.

It wasn't too long until the nation was informed that yet another Aircraft had been purposely flown into the Pentagon, causing great damage and a large loss of innocent life, and then shortly learn that yet a fourth aircraft had plunged into a field in Pennsylvania, after its passengers had defeated the terrorists plan to fly this Aircraft also into an American Government building.

Then, as now, it was very difficult for me, and I suspect for most Americans to fully comprehend the insane savagery of an ignorant and primitive people in causing the deaths of thousands of people, for nothing more than an envy of the prosperity and freedom of the land we love. These savages apparently hate America and its ability to get it's arms around people of all Religions and ethnic backgrounds, and make them welcome, when their countries were all based on a Tribalistic Theocracy, and individual freedoms counted for little, and the law of the gun and the Sword trumped any unborn thoughts of a Democracy. Apparently these subhumans thought that they could set America back to the Twelfth Century or so, where their Countries were most comfortable.

But, they, of course were wrong. In the historic words of a Japanese Admiral of World War Two, they awakened a sleeping giant. It is a shame that it has taken the Deaths of Hundreds of Thousands of their people and of less than Ten Thousand freedom loving and unselfish Americans to show that America can only be changed by the actions of it's own people, in directing it's leaders in a course of action.

So, as we mark this somber Anniversary, let us turn our efforts to a Bi-partisan effort to solve America's problems, and to vow to never, ever, forget not only the horror of 9-11, as it has come to be known, but the lessons we have learned and never again let our guard down.

God Bless our Nation and the thousands of Americans who have given their full measure of Patriotism and courage in defending what will always be a free America.
