On September 11th 2001, our great nation was attacked by men who call themsleves Muslims. It is my understanding that the Muslim religion is dead set against violence in anyform. They also claim that what they are doing is considered to be a "Holy War" and that they will be rewarded by God!
Horse pucky!! What these men is considered to be nothing more than Cold Blooded Murder!
I am volunteer FireFighter/EMT from Falmouth, Maine and like so many of us that day; lost 343 Brothers and Sisters! As FireFighters, EMT's, and Police Officers we serve our communities with a great sense of pride and dedication because it is a job that we all love. The men and women of our Armed Forces are also doing a job that they take a great deal of pride in doing. That of providing each of us with the Liberties that our forefathers fought so hard for!
Personally, wether you are a Republican, Democrat, Independant, or Green; you are an American first and should act accordingly! We all need to come together as one to help defeat these terrorist! You may not like President George W.Bush, however, he is our Commander in Chief and needs all of our support in the days and weeks ahead.
I would ask that each of you do the same when our country elects a new President.
Our young men and women coming home from Iraq need all the support that they can get and not to be ridiculed or slighted because a few don't agree with foreign policy.
In closing, I would ask that each of you say a prayer each night before going to bed and to thank your lucky stars that we live in the Land of the free and home of the brave.
Mr. Thomas Ryan
A Simple Thank You
Last week, while traveling to Chicago on business, I noticed a Marine sergeant traveling with a folded flag, but did not put two and two together. After we boarded our flight, I turned to the sergeant, who'd been invited to sit in First Class (across from me), and inquired if he was heading home.
No, he responded.
Heading out I asked?
No. I'm escorting a soldier home.
Going to pick him up?
No. He is with me right now. He was killed in Iraq. I'm taking him home to
The realization of what he had been asked to do hit me like a punch to the gut. It was an honor for him. He told me that, although he didn't know the soldier, he had delivered the news of his passing to the soldier's family and felt as if he knew them after many conversations in so few days. I
turned back to him, extended my hand, and said, Thank you. Thank you for doing what you do so my family and I can do what we do. Upon landing in Chicago the pilot stopped short of the gate and made the following announcement over the intercom.
"Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to note that we have had the honor of having Sergeant Steeley of the United State's Marine Corps join us on this flight. He is escorting a fallen comrade back home to his family. I ask that you please remain in your seats when we open the forward door to allow Sergeant Steeley to deplane and receive his fellow soldier. We will then turn off the seat belt sign."
Without a sound, all went as requested. I noticed the sergeant saluting the casket as it was brought off the plane, and his action made me realize that I am proud to be an American.
So here's a public Thank You to our military Men and Women for what you do so we can live the way we do.
