This is why we rally to support our troops ... we haven't forgotten 9/11 ... we haven't forgotten the 3,000 innocent people killed in the senseless attacks of 9/11 ... we haven't forgotten the gaping hole in our Pentagon or the loss of conservative author Barbara Olson who was on the airplane that flew into the Pentagon....
We haven't forgotten Flight 93 and the American heroes - regular passengers - who crashed it into a Pennsylvania field when they realized it was on its way to the White House or the Capitol ... we haven't forgotten the horrific sight of an airplane flying into the second Twin Tower in NYC ... we haven't forgotten the Twin Towers crumbling or the sight of hundreds of New Yorkers fleeing from the dust storm that enveloped the streets....
We haven't forgotten the firefighters who were lost inside the Towers when they crumbled ... we haven't forgotten the American flags that showed up nationwide, on houses, on vehicles, on businesses making us feel like Proud Americans.
We haven't forgotten that, under the leadership of President George W. Bush, we have been safe from terrorist attacks in this country since 9/11.
We haven't forgotten the words of our President immediately after those attacks: "We're ready, we're steady, we're resolved."
We haven't forgotten that, after the worst attack ever on U.S. soil -- EVER -- the members of Congress gathered on the front steps of the Capitol, held hands, and sang "God Bless America."
For one brief moment in time, America was united. We were not Democrats, we were not Republicans ... we were Americans.
And that is why we rally to support our troops against the anti-war protesters who are bitter, angry, and politically-driven in their agenda of hate against President Bush.
"If our country does not lead the cause for freedom, it will not be led." --President George W. Bush after 9/11
