Five years ago, our lives were changed forever. 3,000 fellow Americans were murdered in the span of a few hours. While it was an absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful day weather-wise; it was to become one of the gloomiest and darkest days of our Nation's history.
For a while, this country had resolve, backbone and purpose. Unfortunately, for a lot of us that determination has withered away to become replaced by uncertainty and unwillingness.
The road to defeat this enemy is long, hard and uncertain. But be aware of one thing, we must see this to the end and be victorious. There is no room for compromise, no room for appeasement, no room for negotiation in a situation where the enemy wants us dead simply because of who we are and the way we live our lives and enjoy our freedom.
As President Bush spoke so strongly that night, we must not waiver, we must not fail, we must have the courage to see this to the end. This is not an issue that is umpteen shades of gray, it is an issue that is black and white - whether you want to admit it or not; we are at war and we must win. This is the only way to honor those heros who have fallen.
