Sept. 11, 2001

I hope that you all take the time to remember what happened on this date six years ago. It was -- and remains -- one of the saddest days in history. It was truly a tragedy.

My mother says it reminds her of when JFK was assassinated. She says, "You will always remember where and what you were doing when you heard what happened."

This whole thing, this great American experiment in democracy, should never be taken for granted. I am fond of saying: "Nothing worth having comes easy." This is especially true when it comes to preserving our way of life; a way of life that has meant so much, for so many. It is up to all of us, as stewards of our nation, to see that we remain true to the spirit of our founding fathers by ensuring that all people are free in their pursuits of life, liberty, and happiness.

My two cents' worth.
