September 11

Today is a very sad day for our nation as we remember a tragedy that affected each and every one of us.  We have proven that we are resilient.  We came together, rose up, and showed the world our courage.  We are a nation filled with many heroes.  
As September 11 is a day that we will never forget, there is something that some of us have forgotten about.  We hear so many reports on the progress and happenings in Iraq, but it is much less often that we hear about Afghanistan.  Our fight in Afghanistan has a direct tie to 9/11, and today is a very sad day there.  Today, 2008 has become the deadliest year in Afghanistan for our troops.  
I ask that today as we all remember 9/11 and our loss, our courage, and the heroes that rose up, we also take a moment to realize we are still fighting the 9/11 battle and the sacrifices continue.
