    Default Trip to PA including Flight 93 Memorial

    First - the beautiful tribute to the heroes lost that day. Me and the kids spent about an hour there. My son was alive, not-yet-born during the attacks. Watching him read through the displays - I could see him change a bit as he came face to face with what our nation is up against. Driving rains did nothing to deter our visit.

    This rock marks the point of impact.

    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    The next time our Lefties start bleating on about how Blair and Bush are 'war criminals' for fighting the War on Terror as they did, I'd like to see them force-fed poster-sized prints of these photos. Let them choke on the TRUTH of what they disgustingly defend !
    It's That Bloody Foreigner Again !!!
