In the aftermath of hurricane Harvey, the current destruction of hurricane Irma, and the wildfires ravaging the west, we recognize that these were caused by forces in nature.
9-11 and other terrorist acts were caused by deviant human sources. We remember 9-11, the loss of human life and the destruction caused was a result of hate filled radical Islamic extremists and realize that the threat is ongoing.
We also remember the bravery and selflessness that unified this nation in the way Americans responded to that baseless attack. We are at war with an enemy that is difficult to identify with a mindset most of us find hard to understand. We must remain vigilant and wise in this battle, continuing to take measures to protect America. As technology becomes more advanced and available to the enemy, we give thanks to our military, our Commander in Chief and our steadfast leadership in this ongoing war and we pray for these people fighting this war and keeping us safe.
Our prayers are with those who lost so much on 9-11 and with those who face the dangers of natural disasters now. Unity strengthens us and we are blessed by so many who join in helping those in need.
God bless America!
