“18 years ago today over 3,000 average Americans headed out from their homes to go to work and earn a living to provide for their families. Unknown to them, or anyone else in the world, was the fact that they would never return, they would never say good-bye and their time on this earth would be snuffed out and robbed by a deep and dark evil that still exists to this very day.
On this dark anniversary words are beginning to escape me, not that memories are fading but because we have gone nowhere in correcting this travesty. Many years later, many lives later, we are fighting the same old battle and just holding our own. Often I relate these thoughts to our fight to save our wild equines; still here, still fighting and yet the enemy continues to destroy the families and steal the freedom of tens of thousands of souls.
Even my favorite video of the Budweiser Clydesdales giving respect is becoming more and more difficult to find on the web, but I found it today and once again will share it this day because today is about two things of massive importance, Remembrance and Respect!
May we bring honor and dignity to the memory of those we have lost, this day.
Peace” ~ R.T.
