Letter to the Editor
Friday, Sept. 13, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

“Patriot Day” was Sept. 11. Let us remember the heroic acts by citizens in the affected areas (New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa.) as well as from throughout our great nation. Let us also remember those who lost their lives that fateful day.

Any act of war, provoked or unprovoked, carries with it many consequences not limited to sacrifice of life or the countless disabilities and disfigurements — the scars carried for a lifetime by veterans, their fellow comrades and their families and love ones.

Understanding these facts has been the “American Pride” of so many throughout our nation's history, including those, who by choice, continue this fine tradition of service. These “Patriots” are a special breed, willing to sacrifice all in service of the principles for which our nation was founded.

We, citizens of the USA, founded upon Christian principles, must depend on our faith, place our trust into the Lord Jesus Christ's hands and seek his holy guidance for our nation's leadership, which plans to retaliate against Syria's government.

We pray our nation has the fortitude not to involve itself in the wars that have plagued that part of the world for centuries.

Dennis McKendry
