Hard to believe that 12 years have gone by since the attack on our country and the loss of innocent lives. I remember I was in the studio at my former job in Fresno. On the radio when my partner said, there's been a plane that has crashed into one of the twin towers. I thought that was odd, because knowing a little about flying, I realized that planes are off limits in that air space around the big buildings. I thought it must have been an accident, then thought, what if it was intentional? Only minutes later finding out it was a deliberate act of terrorism against our country, taking many innocent lives. It was meant for evil, but did their cowardly act accomplish anything at all? In my personal opinion, I don't think it did. Yes folks were scared at first, but once we realized that someone was trying to change the way we live and fracture our freedoms, we got angry. Someone asked me if I would stop flying because of what happened. I said absolutely not! I will not let a bully stop me from living my life the way I do. I continue to fly, but keep a watchful eye for anything odd. (yes, I'll jump outta my seat and open a can of whoop a$$ if I have to!) It's all about Freedom folks and the only place to find the liberties we enjoy each and every day is right here in our own country, the good ol' US of A! Many good men and women shed blood for us to enjoy those very liberties we enjoy today. And no act of terror can ever take that away! I believe what happened brought many of us together and I'm hoping as we commemorate the day that we are reminded once again that we are one big family, warts and all. Let's all do something good to seize the day and remember the lives lost and the families left behind. ~Rose
