On this 9/11, I hope you will take a minute to reflect on the where you were 17 years ago when two planes struck the World Trade Center. Our country was attacked by an outside enemy.
Immediately following the attack our nation came together as one and it brought out the best in all of us. Even our politicians stood together, united as one, against our enemies. Now our country is under attack from within, with the political game fueling the fire. Many of our political leaders are more focused on winning the game of politics than they are with the long term health of our great nation and its people.
This 9/11 I challenge you to think. Think about the principles that made our country great and think about the principles that will keep our country great for the next generation. Don’t be afraid to accidentally agree with, or work with someone on the other side if it means that we can improve and promote forward progress for the greater good. We need more leaders who say “What is best for our country?” not “What is best for our party.” I challenge you to become one of those leaders. My prayer is that we will come together and work together, so we can remain as one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln
