Flashback Friday - 2001


I realize 2001 is a hard year to flashback to.  But, I also believe it is important to do so.  So, that we truly, NEVER FORGET.


Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes, or in their offices; secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers; moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror . . . This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day. Yet, we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.

~ President George W. Bush, September 11, 2001


Obviously, he was our President.  And I voted for him.  Judge me all you want.  I still believe he handled this tragic and unthinkable act remarkably well.
