Acton Dedicates 9/11 WTC Memorial

Posted September 11th, 2011 by Iron Mike

In a brief, classy and fitting ceremony this afternoon, Acton dedicated its new 911 Monument on the 10th Anniversary of that horrible day.

The attack – meant to crush American resolve, has instead strengthened it.  The ‘martyrdom’ meant to serve as a recruiting poster for al Qaeda has instead seen its ranks decimated, its planners captured and water-boarded,  and its leader killed in his bedroom.

The twisted steel from the twin towers of the World Trade Center becomes a lasting lesson for our young people about the evil which lurks in the dark corners of our world, and a reminder that only eternal vigilance, selfless sacrifice, and courage can preserve our liberty and our western civilization.

 

God Bless America!

    Let freedom never perish in your hands. ~ Joseph Addison

    We have enjoyed so much freedom for so long that we are perhaps in danger of forgetting how much blood it cost to establish the Bill of Rights. ~Felix Frankfurter

    Thank you, RR, for your part in reminding us of the fragility of freedom.
