Dear Senators...thank you both for today.

U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) (R) lays a flower as he and Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) visit a memorial at Ground Zero to mark the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York, September 11, 2008.REUTERS/Pool (UNITED STATES)

September 11 will forever be about more than just a single ideology. The people who died on that dreadful day in 2001 were not Democrats or Republicans, not liberal or conservatives...they were Americans. Much like the calm December 7th morning in 1941 that united another generation, our brothers and sisters were going able their normal routines. Acts of violence, thoughts of malice far from their minds.

I will never forget standing and watching the second plane barrel into the South Tower of the World Trade Center, forever changed, as we all were.

Today is about remembering those nearly 3000. Thank you Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain for demonstrating that and putting the dirty business of politics aside for this day...their day.

I'm nitpicking but it hurt me to see Obama throw the rose down while Mr and Mrs McCain knelt down and placed the roses in the pool...

But, you're was a good day.

Thanks for coming to my site. I welcome you and am so gratified that Lester's post meant something to you. God bless you if you've lost someone or are in the process...
all the best, and come back soon. I will.
