    It warms my heart to see so many people participating in so many ceremonies and opportunities to remember those we lost.

    We should always remember. We should have learned the lessons of 9-11 also; and attempt to figure out why Obama keeps re-writing American history. See

    So here we are 10 years later and still there are 28 pages of the 9/11 report which haven’t been released! This video sheds a lot of light on what those 28 pages might have in them.. Let us grow out of the silly idea that a bunch of cave dwelling Afghanis were able to pull something like that off! Americans deserve closure and we must fight for it!
