September 11 - We Remember

There She Stands.

No matter how you feel about where our government has taken us since 9/11/01...
No matter what your political leanings...
No matter your religious beliefs...

This is a time to reflect - to hug our loved ones - and say a prayer for the souls that were lost in that tragedy.

Strive to protect our freedoms and liberties and our principles as a nation.
Work to restore the intentions of our Founders.
Honor those who were lost by doing something kind or charitable today.

We should remember these thoughts as well:

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. - Thomas Jefferson

But if we are to be told by a foreign Power ... what we shall do, and what we shall not do, we have Independence yet to seek, and have contended hitherto for very little.
- George Washington, letter to Alexander Hamilton, May 8, 1796

What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man. This is the law: all the rest is commentary. - The Talmud
