At the risk of sounding like Lee Greenwood, today is just one of those days that I'm proud to be an American. I love the people who stand over 96th Street on the bridge with their flags and arms waving all day every September 11th. I love the freedoms that we have (and I pray that they remain protected). I love that men and women who are currently fighting for the lives of people that they will never know and who are thankful for the opportunity to do so. I doesn't feel like it's a choice this time around because it is such an easy decision for me, but I'm thankful that in the government of our country, I have a choice.
