Eight Years Later

There are still those who live who are seriously ill from the attacks that hit our country eight years ago.  Attacks that people seem to have forgotten.  Lives lost (people murdered) who are no longer thought about.  

I looked around for something or someplace locally that would do something to remember this day.  But I have found nothing.  No one is doing anything.  Sadly, I am not all that surprised.  I am deeply saddened that in such a short period of time, this day is just another day in the history books with a brief "Wear red, white, and blue."  The TV stations are playing tapes of that day, but that's about it.  

As we remember (or struggle to remember) the horrors of that day and the attack that hit our country, let us also remember there is still another war going on to help those who did not die that day, but are dying as a result of that day.  Some call it "The Secret List."
