Post Ten Years Since 9/11 - and we have been kept safe
I want to thank President George W Bush and his administration for keeping the USA safe from more mass terrorist attacks since September 11, 2001. His fight against the terrorists has weakened them. I think that we still have cells that can attack, without a doubt, but it's far less of a major threat than it was ten years ago.

Former President Clinton and current Vice President Biden said the same at the Shanksville service yesterday and I appreciate their gracious acknowledgement. This is quite a change from Biden's recent commentary on any and all of his political opponents. I also thank former Pres. Clinton for teaming up with Speaker Boehner to raise the remaining $10 million needed to complete the Flight 93 Memorial.

Since Mayor Bloomberg will not have clergy of any faith at the ceremonies at Ground Zero today, the Twitter community has suggested that everyone sing Amazing Grace during his speech or any other time today, whether you are there or somewhere else. That should make up for our part of the healing that some of us think is helped by faith.

For all of you who lost someone on 9/11, I am singing here for you.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

=D> Nice job. I was singing that song, too. Millions were. Second your thanks for the safety Mountain Mom. It's good to see Cheney out and around. We owe him a lot and he doesn't even seem to hold a grudge that some demonized him for political reasons. That's a true public servant to do the right thing when you will be beat up for it. Not like the spoiled brat in the white house today.

**== God Bless.

The memorial looks good. The new building will be a real asset and relief to have finished.
