With every fiber of my being, I despise our national security state. Real Americans don’t hide behind police and bureaucrats. They strike back with all the force that is given them.
The example of Tom Burnett should be the real American response to terror and all threats to our god-given freedoms.
Remember Burnett? He was a 38-year old Wall Street Banker, father of three girls, husband to a beautiful wife, and a devout Christian.
This man, a former college football player for St. John’s College in Minnesota, a lover of business as well as of ancient Greek philosophy, helped two other courageous western men drive a jet airliner into rural Pennsylvania soil on a clear September morning, 2001.
“We’re all going to die, but three of us are going to do something about it. I love you honey.” These were the last words his wife heard over the cell phone.
These are the words of a Western Man; this was an American.
Be an American, not a coward.
