Remember the day after September 11, 2001, When US flags were flying from practically every house and building and construction crane. Or the sense of unity that was felt all over this great nation. We were truly the United States of America. We pulled together as Americans, putting political and social differences aside to help each other to heal in our own way. Today, nearly eight years later, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the economic crunch, illegal immigration and other social issues, are threatening that unity. We must not let media hype and labeling divide us as Americans. We must not forsake the principals and ideals of our founding fathers, or the freedoms we enjoy which are still being paid for in American blood. 9-12ers.com is not affiliated with any political party.
