By Presidential Proclamation, (Public Law 107-89) September 11 is "Patriot Day", and the the American flag should be flown at half-staff at individual American homes, at the White House, and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments, home and abroad, from sunrise to sunset.

I went to the funeral services at Saint Isidore for Tom Burnett, and will never forget the courage his widow and young children showed during this emotional ceremony. I had goose bumps as our congregation sang "God bless America". I believe it is during these times of disaster and despair that our citizens, thru faith, come together as a unified, strong, cohesive unit, overcoming great odds to persevere thru great tragedy. We were not African-Americans, or Hispanic-Americans, or Republicans, or Democrats, but were simply Americans, united in strength and faith. We owe it to the Burnett family, and all those other families that lost loved ones on September 11th, to remember that, and to never forget.

All the people who died on 9/11/2010 and in events caused by our military reaction to 9/11 should invite all of us to consider reverent remembrance of those that have died in all countries as a result. Let humanity and not our politics guide peaceful reflection of the loss of lives.

Let us hope for a celebrate of one world in peace with humanity and justice for all.
