A message from Sal Russo and Amy Kremer of the Tea Party Express:
Today we at the Tea Party Express are taking a moment to put politics aside and join our fellow Americans across the country in remembering the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001. The attacks that came ten years ago today jolted many Americans awake to the fact that destructive forces exist who wish our annihilation.
Thousands of American lives were lost in a surprise attack that was meant to shake our confidence and cause our knees to buckle. Instead, this despicable act of terror galvanized the American people and unified us with a spirit of patriotism.
There is a reason we live in the greatest nation on the planet, and that is because We the People love and care for our country and will do anything to protect her. Without America there is no freedom, there is no liberty. We as a people understand and cherish this gift that was bought with the blood of patriots generations before us.
If you weren’t able to join us for the memorial in Deltona today, please take a moment to remember those who lost their lives, and honor our men and women in uniform who keep us safe. Tomorrow the work of the tea party continues with the historic Tea Party Presidential Debate, where a new American President and defender of liberty will be chosen.
