Took a trip to the Flight 93 Memorial today with Daisy and her mom. I am not sure how to put this, but I have never been so moved by a memorial. Maybe because I lived through it, also had a couple of my employees who were suppose to be working in the World Trade Center, that I am sensitive to the lost on Sept 11.
As I walked around the grounds, I found myself talking to the people that died there. Feeling pride for what they did by standing up to the terrorist and wishing that over my 21 years in the military I could have done more to stop the killing.
War and terrorist acts should not be treated lightly. If I was President I would use the full strength of the military against anyone who would act upon another human being as well as anyone who would support them. It may not be the civilized thing to do, but then again, neither is terrorism.
I did feel one thing after walking around the memorial. That is that no man who has a soul can leave the Flight 93 Memorial with a dry eye.
