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.
