War Memorial Proposal
Yes, I've been reading Hugh Hewitt's blog today, and it shows. He has posted an article calling for the construction of a War Memorial dedicated to our brave men and women under arms who have given their lives, the ultimate sacrifice, for our Country, and the liberation of the people in two Countries, Afghanistan and Iraq, fighting terrorism and tyranny. He is absolutely right.
This is the email I have sent to my Congressman:
Dear Congressman Kline:
I wanted to write a brief note to you in regards to a proposed memorial dedicated to the Men and Women who have given their lives in the fight against terrorism. This proposal is currently floating around the internet. The idea is to build a memorial at the sight where United Airlines Flight 93 went down in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001. This is where the fight against terrorism began for the United States, and so it is a fitting site. I would not advocate the use of public monies for this memorial, but rather that a fund be set up to facilitate donations for the building of this memorial. I, for one, would gladly give money to such a project.
Further, I would advocate that the survivors of those soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our Liberties, and bring freedom to the oppressed peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan, be the committee designated to approve the designs for such a monument.
