It’s hard to believe it’s been 14 years since the terrorist attacks against the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and the bravery of our American heroes on United Flight 93 and our first responders. It’s a day that I will never forget and as long as I live, I will honor the lives lost on that day.
And now, something I rarely do, but I think has to be done. I’m going to get political, so if you don’t want to read any more, I will understand.
It’s sad to say that I think most Americans believe they are less secure now and that in the last 8 years our country has seen multiple terrorist attacks. Fort Hood. The Boston Marathon bombings. Chattanooga. Benghazi.
We have a void in leadership that has resulted in a maelstrom of misery in the Middle East that is affecting every corner of the world. We have little or no security at our border and policies which are encouraging an influx of people into our country. When I did research for FIGHT THE SHADOWS, I was shocked to find out just how many gang members crossed the border time and time again with little resistance.
Edmund Burke said “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
We have been doing nothing for eight years and look at where we are. We need strong leadership. We need someone who will do the right thing regardless of how hard it is to do and how unpopular that might make them. It’s time to stop leading by poll numbers and start leading by what’s best for this country and for the world.
God bless you all and God Bless America.
