Thousands, if not millions of Americans read Paul Krugman’s repulsive article on the New York Times site yesterday. When I first read it, I was angry, very angry. It is clearly a politically-driven hack job from a frustrated economist who has been unsuccessful in his desire to be considered this generations’ great economist, whose Keyensian ideals based on a single data point prove over and over again not to work.

But people can see from what he wrote what a little man Krugman really is, so I will leave it at that.

What we should remember today is what happened after the atrocious attacks of 9/11/01.
Americans found God again. Churches and synagogues left previously half-empty were packed again, like they were during our parents’ generation and more so in the generation before theirs. Neighbors helped neighbors in true Godly service. We believed in each other and remembered a higher power again.

It is an interesting dichotomy how a tragedy can bring us closer together, closer to each other and our God. But it does. It is also easy to forget those feelings. Today, I hope we can all remember the spring that rose of the winter that was 9/11, the outpouring of good from the tragedy, the brighter side of a bitter evil brought by those who thought they could bring us to our knees.

Rather, today, we as Americans stand taller, stronger, and resolved to overcome with our genuine goodness.

God bless the USA.
