Freedom Is Not Free



If you are feeling peaceful, watching TV, or just resting in your home; pause for a moment then think of the horrible losses suffered by our citizens on September 11, 2001. On that date it showed clearly the tenacity of those terrorist and their stance that their crimes against humanity are probably based on poverty, and as usual, that the prosperity of these United States is the problem like crimes against Allah, separation of church and state, in Islam, there is no separation of church and state.

It's no different then December 7, 1941 when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. The cost was heavy in American lives and the destruction of Pearl Harbor, the mass killing of civilians and military personal. Wake up, freedom is not free and never was.
