Saturday is September 11. The day the world changed for all of us nine years ago. Islamic terrorists attacked our homeland in a horrific way and took 3000 innocent lives. Since then we have been involved in 2 wars in the Middle-East and seen many more lives lost as our military has sought to defeat the tyranny that would threaten peace loving people everywhere.
Nine-eleven changed our world view. It changed our lives in many ways we have come to accept as normal. And the fight continues. Center stage is currently Afghanistan where our troops are engaged in a surge of combat. In Iraq, though the President has said there is a cessation of our combat mission, many thousands of American troops remain and the killing of them has not stopped.
I personally believe we will have this threat with us for an untold length stretching far into the future. We must stay vigilant and never forget.
I would like to suggest that tomorrow be a day not for burning the Quran but for flying the American flag. Fly it high and proud in memory of those who have died and in defiance of those who try to destroy us and our way of life. This war is not our fault and not of our choosing. But we should never shrink from defending our great nation and it's people. I'm Jim Cameron and that's today's Viewpoint.
