I keep hearing all these things about another terrorist attack happening on June 11, following the pattern set by 9/11 in NYC and 3/11 in Spain.
If it happens and they strike NYC and I die, I just wanted to say that I die a happy man. The happiness that I've had in my life till now and the pride that I have in my country is something that no terrorist will ever have. If death is the price I have to pay for the freedom and glee that I've felt as an American over my past 23 years, then I'd gladly be the first one in line to the pearly gates.
On September 22, 1776, a 21 year old man named Nathan Hale said it best as he recited his final words before being hung by the British for spying, "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."
God Bless and shed not a tear!
