Lest we forget 9/11

Not much has been written, in New Zealand, about those Americans that fell on September 11, 6 years ago. Our Labour politicians no longer consider Americans our friends and actively encourage those that are our enemies to make New Zealand their home.

The world changed on that day. The West is in constant fear of those that would force their way of life on us and we are reminded everyday when we watch what is unfolding in the Middle East, about what would happen if our freedoms were taken at the point of a gun or homicide bomber.

Those that are fighting the good fight in Iraq must be given the hero status that they deserve, for that is what they are. Heroes.

I give my thoughts to those that lost their lives on September 11 2001 and for those lost in Iraq and elsewhere who fought and are still fighting to keep our way of life the way it is.

Lest we forget.
