A quick reminder.
It’s the title of Barry McGuire’s song, not it’s Vietnam era, nuke, and Jordan River contents, that concerns us here, reminding us that eighteen years ago to the day was the Eve of Destruction of the Twin Towers in NYC — an infant born eighteen years ago tomorrow would tomorrow be eligible for military service without seeking parental consent.
What a choice: to jump to one’s death, or burn alive in a kamikaze’d building.
Usama bin Laden is long gone, and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will be tried, if he still lives, in 2021.
We remember the fallen, and honor our first responders and all who serve and save.
