Letters to the Editor

Standing up like others did for U.S.

Would you stand up like they did on flight zero ninety-three?

Would you stand up like they did on the beaches of Normandy?

Would you stand up like they did on Iwo Jima and Bataan?

Could you stand up like they did on the U.S.S. Cole?

Could you stand up like they did on the frozen Korean soil?

Could you stand up like they did against Hitler’s master plan?

Could you stand up like they did at our barracks in the sand?

Could you stand up like they did in the jungles of Vietnam?

Could you stand up like they did at our embassy in Iran?

Could you stand up like they did on the U.S.S. Arizona?

Could you stand up like they did after the blast in Oklahoma?

Could you stand up like they did when they broke the sword of Japan?

Could you stand up like they are in Iraq and Afghanistan?

You will never stand up like they did on the morning of 9-1-1!

Cowards die a thousand deaths -- heroes only one.
