These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.

  1. That’s a great photo of a very poignant moment. I too am proud to call these men and women heroes.

    • I reminds us ‘they also serve who only stand and wait’.

  2. I’m not sure that I fully understand what this item is about. Is it the case that we are to applaud Sha’ Quanda for ringing the bell? It might do more for the memory of those lost if we were to be presented with images of where the fallen heroes have been laid to rest – to better grasp the depth of the sacrifices that they have made

    • I think she’s more a symbol of America remembering Sept. 11th victims. All across the country, military bases had similar programs to commemorate what seems to be evaporating from memory for some. The real heroes are those who ran into those burning buildings, caring nothing for their safety as they hoped to save a few. There are many fine sites that memorialize those actions.

      Thanks for your thoughts.
