Seven years ago today,

our lives were changed forever. Afterwards, our country came together as one and stood united like no one in the world thought we could. Since then, we've managed to tear ourselves apart from the inside out. We don't need terrorists to bring us down. We have hard core Democrats and Republicans who are doing a fine job of that for us. Senator Joe Lieberman got it right...too many political leaders today are indeed guided more by loyalty to party than loyalty to America.
I urge you all to rent, borrow or buy the movie World Trade Center and watch it tonight. Remember what happened to us. Remember the tragedy. Remember the tears, the heartache, the fear of that time. Then remember how we came together as one nation. Remember the solidarity, the support, the camaraderie. Most importantly, remember this phrase because no truer words were ever spoken: United We Stand! Divided, we fall. It's time we all came together again and stood as one.

    Another blogland friend urged me to watch Flight 93. I don't think I can do that. I just don't think I can.
