Attend program Tuesday at NHS — and never forget

As Veterans Day approaches, many of our thoughts turn to events in history that have affected us in some way. Many of us have lost loved ones in battle, and many more Patriots have suffered lifelong disabilities to keep us safe at home. Thanking these men and women for their unselfish sacrifices somehow seems so trite, considering what they lost and what we gained.

As Americans, we really do need to take a closer look at who we are and what we stand for. What is it that we want to hand down from generation to generation? What sets us apart from other nations? I would like it to be that we still honor our God as a nation, that we still pray and listen for His guidance, and that we are committed to the constitution of our country.

A very important event is scheduled for Tuesday, at the Northview High School Auditorium in Brazil. It’s called “Remember 9/11” with guest speaker, Mr. Wesley Wong, and it will begin at 7 p.m. This free event is open to all interested persons, and promises to be a truly spellbinding, detailed disclosure of what happened from somebody who was at the main helm of it all!

Mr. Wong, now retired, was the top-ranking FBI official at ground Zero on Sept. 11, 2001, and will walk the audience through his experience that fateful day! For many of us, it will be reminder of the whats and wheres and hows. But for most all our school-aged children (today’s high school seniors were only a few years old), it will be a real eye-opener!

This program is sponsored by the Clay County Eliza Rizley Stacey Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution and is being presented because it is so vital for us to remember and never forget what happened on United States soil on Sept. 11, 2001. Please be in attendance and find out where we can go from here.
