We will not tire, we will not falter, we will not fail.

On September the 11th, enemies of freedom committed an act of war against our country. Americans have known wars, but for the past 136 years they have been wars on foreign soil, except for one Sunday in 1941. Americans haveknown the casualties of war, but not at the center of a great city on a peaceful morning.

Americans have known surprise attacks, but never before on thousands of civilians. All of this was brought upon us in a single day, and night fell on a different world,a world where freedom itself is under attack.

The waving flag came from a Quicktime movie I made of the flag with my digital camera on the day my son graduated from Airborne School at Ft. Benning, GA. It was a great day for the flag and for me.
