Six years later;
Osama bin Laden. As far as we know, this bastard is still alive and free. That needs to change as soon as possible!
Lisa Beamer. Her husband Todd Beamer was on Flight 93. He is famous for having said the words "Lets Roll" to a telephone operator just before the plane went down after the bravery of several men and women fought back against the terrorists. Heroes one and all!!! Lisa Beamer gave birth to a daughter, Morgan Beamer.
Rudy Giuliani, mayor of New York City at the time is now a Presidential Candidate. I personally credit him for inspiring the Nation to rise up and move forward. He took charge! At the time, I personally believed that everything was going to be OK because Rudy said it would be. Thanks Rudy! You were truly a leader when our great nation desperately needed one. Rudy, for that alone you've earned my vote!
The 3 firefighters featured in the iconic image of the flag raising above. According to a NYFD spokesperson, all 3 are still working for the New York Fire Department.. Heroes! Never doubt that fact!!!
Always Remember that terrible day.
Fly your American Flag and thank a soldier or veteran for all that they have done and will do to keep our country safe. Most of all, be Proud To Be An American!
