For you foreigners around these parts, today in the United States of America, we celebrate Patriot Day. Of course, today marks the seventh anniversary of those horrific attacks on New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. But, today’s solemn celebration is metamorphisizing into an occasion to not just remember our loss on 9/11/2001, but to consider the sacrifice of every American. We seek to honor the patriotism of every American. We’ve used what was intended for evil to drive us to stand tall and show our respect for our wonderful nation.
We’ve not always got it right. We have made mistakes. We’ve even been driven to war with ourselves. However, we do generally make the strongest effort to get back on track, each time we’ve been derailed.
So, today I want to use my little megaphone, here on my little corner of the internets, to declare my love and respect for my great nation, the USA.
Happy Patriot Day, Americans!
