Lest We Forget

 

This is the 13th Anniversary year of the destruction of the World Trade Center and the attack on the Pentagon by Islamic Terrorist.

 

 

September 11, 2001

As time passes, the tragic events experienced on that terrible day begins to fade and we tend to be less resolved in our will to face terrorism.  We can not forget, we can not allow that to happen.

America, we must be diligent in preserving our Freedoms here and abroad by supporting the people of Democratic countries and condemning those who rule by murder, fear, lies and repression.  Shine the light of truth on those countries that support terrorism either by deed, word,  money or shelter.  It is our duty, as free people, to speak out against all violations against human rights.  If we don't, who will ?

"A number of years ago a president of this country declared that we have a rendezvous with destiny. In a world where terrorism spreads and the innocent die we must fulfill our destiny. If not us who? If not now when?" óRonald Reagan

Only Time
by Enya

Who can say
Where the road goes
Where the day flows
- Only time

Who can say why your heart sighs
as your love flies
-Only time

And who can say why your heart cries
when your love lies
-Only time

Who can say when the roads meet
that love might be
in your heart

And who can say
when the day sleeps
if the night keeps
all your heart

Night keeps all your heart

Who can say if your love grows
as your heart shows
-Only time

And who can say
Where the road goes
Where the day flows,
-Only time

Who knows-only time
Who knows-only time.....
