A Special 9/11 Message From Mets Merized
Time does not heal all wounds.
The pain of what happened on September 11th, 2001 has not subsided. We can put the tragedy of what took place on that day out of our minds, but we can never put it out of our hearts.
Every single day, Americans are still dying because of 9/11. Their lives continue to raise the death toll of that tragic day. What started out as 3,000 lives lost, has now eclipsed 6,000.
Let’s take some time to remember those victims and to honor them. Let’s take a few minutes to remember and honor those who put their lives on the line every single waking hour, so that we here at home can go on living our lives and rebuilding the dreams that perished on that fateful day.
Tens of thousands of service men and women don’t have the luxury of going online each morning to see what place their team is in the standings, or to read blogs about their favorite teams. They risk their lives so that millions of us can enjoy these simple pleasures.
The best way to honor the fallen is to go on living the life and cherishing the freedom for which they died defending.
The best way to honor the heroes who still fight to preserve our way of life, is to live our lives in a manner that is worth defending. To reflect the values and the virtues of being an American, every single day.
Freedom and liberty can mean a million different things to a million different people, but there is one common truth that our differences cannot dissuade. Freedom is as fragile or as strong as the will of those who are willing to defend it.
Support our troops, remember September 11th, and be proud to be American.

I'm a lifelong Mets fan who loves writing and talking about the Amazins' 24/7. From the Miracle in 1969 to the magic of 1986, and even the near misses in '73 and '00, I've experienced it all - the highs and the lows. I started Mets Merized Online in 2005 to feed my addiction.
