Dedication
This project is dedicated to all the Americans
who have died fighting for my freedom. In the
226 years that the United States has existed,
many people believed in freedom so much that they
died fighting to save the United States from our
enemies. On September 11, 2001, freedom began to
mean something to me. I saw planes hitting
buildings filled with people who were free to
earn money for their families. The planes were
driven by people who force women to hide behind
veils and children to die before they turn five
because they cant visit a doctor. To all the
children who lost parents on September 11th in
our War Against Terrorism I think you are
heroes of the best kind. God will help you grow
up without a mother or a father and still be the
best you can be. Love, Kirsten
