My helper and I were in the shop picking up tools and items we would need that day. My Uncle came out of the house telling us to come inside. The TV was on and showing the after effects of the first plane hitting the World Trade Tower 1.
My thoughts went back to Oct. 24, 1983, Beirut Lebanon to be exact. An attachment of US Marines had been killed when their barracks had been bombed.
I knew the ante had just been increased tenfold.
Up to this point I knew America had been fighting AT terrorism and now we were fighting With terrorism.
Sitting here now thinking about this topic just numbs my soul. I hope the crop of fighters now in uniform are up to the challenge.
