Below is a speech made by John McCain this morning in regard to Sept. 11. Sentor Obama, was a no show, but did send a email….Think I am joking? I am not, at the end of the article you can find a link to the source…..This shows his clear lack of concern for America. This is just a appalling as his refusal to visit wounded soldiers.
How could any American be so inconsiderate as to not say a few words today. Obama, who wants to be the leader of the free world, could not even take more than enough time to right a email. Please remember this the next time, you ask me “WHY MCCAIN?………………..
Republican John McCain, in Shanksville, Pa.:
No American living then should ever forget the heroism that occurred in the skies above this field on Sept. 11, 2001. It is believed that the terrorists on United Flight 93 may have intended to crash the airplane into the United States Capitol. Hundreds if not thousands of people would have been at work in that building when that fateful moment occurred, and been destroyed along with a beautiful symbol of our freedom. They and, very possibly I, owe our lives to the passengers who summoned the courage and love necessary to deny our depraved and hateful enemies their terrible triumph.
I have witnessed great courage and sacrifice for America’s sake, but none greater than the sacrifice of those good people who grasped the gravity of the moment, understood the threat, and decided to fight back at the cost of their lives.
I spoke at the memorial service for one of them, Mark Bingham. I acknowledged that few of us could say we loved our country as well as he and all the heroes of Sept. 11 had. The only means we possess to thank them is to try to be as good an American as they were. We might fall well short of their standard, but there is honor in the effort.
In the Gospel of John it is written, ‘Greater love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.’ Such was their love; a love so sublime that only God’s love surpasses it. I am in awe of it as much as I am in debt to it. May God bless their souls.
