Gold -- Take Pause

They weren't invited 10 yearsago on that day in 2001 either. They just showed up, did their job & 343 police & firefighters never came back.less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet Reply

We The People. No one defines that more than the superheroes that are the men and women in uniform (military, fire, rescue and police). Ten years ago some decided to test the conviction of those words and our real life superheroes led the example of what We The People means. Like true superheroes, they ask for no glory. Even though they deserve it.

So on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 I stand tall, my head bowed in honor of those fallen victims and superheroes, my fist raised clenching Old Glory, silently screaming three things:

1. Thank You
2. Never Forget
3. WE THE PEOPLE
