Nine Eleven

It’s been 10 years since…I had planned to write about the terrible treatment of 9/11 responders who are not receiving the help they need, but somehow it doesn’t seem the time. This is a day to remember those who died at the hands of people who would deny us our freedom. and reaffirm our fight against terrorism.

Our failure to meet the medical needs is a national disgrace, but I will write about this another time. Here is a beautiful tribute to what happened that day, ten years ago.
