Over at Sgt. Hook, the good First Sergeant has been writing in response to reader questions submitted over the last few days. Once recent question has been sitting in the back of my mind the last few days:
What is the thing that you are most afraid of in life?
That we’ll lose, that we aren’t as dedicated to our preservation as others are to our destruction.
I have much the same fear as the Sergeant does.
A few times now I have written about how we maintain resolve in the face of all that is going on about us – particularly in the media. But it’s our own internal resolve that I fear. Simply put, do we have the deep tenacity required to continue the right that we’re in to its end.
There are days that I wake up optimistically and don’t feel so much fear about our resolve – and then there are days when I wonder if we have all forgotten what happened to us on September 11th – the day we finally woke up and realized that there were a large group of people out there that wished us harm?
The President said during his speech ten days after September 11th that as time went on we may forget what happened to us – and why.
We cannot forget – and that’s my fear.
