During the Democrat convention, a spokesman for John Kerry said the difference between the two parties is between hope and fear. Good. I like that distinction. Hope is what we lived with during the 1990s while radical Islamists were building their terror cells that brought down the World Trade Center buildings on 9/11. Hope was what took this country into an agreement with the psychotic regime of North Korea regarding nuclear weapons. Fear, as Winston Churchill aptly stated when describing the effect of being shot at, is what brings us to a coherent, responsible response to those who want to kill us: it focuses the mind.

Tuesday marked the sixth year since Americans watched in disbelief as passenger airplanes were used as weapons to fly into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and crash in a Pennsylvania field, on Sept. 11, 2001. The realization slowly came that terrorists piloted these planes, that thousands had died and nothing was ever going to be the same. Although that day wasengulfed in tragedy it was also a day that exemplified the true meaning of American hero. It was in honor of heroes that Los Angeles County firefighters and engineers from La Cañada Flintridge Station 82 and 19 joined together for a ceremony early Tuesday morning at Station 19 on Foothill Bouelvard.

Recent revelations about FBI agents who'd identified Muslim extremists within our country and had, based upon intelligence they'd gathered as well as their own intelligence, determined these men posed an imminent threat to the USA but were prevented from doing their jobs to prevent this, are staggering. The sad history of our intelligence gathering agencies since WWll, when they were the best in the world, is an obvious road sign pointing us in the right direction. President Bush must:  Accept that major mistakes were made with disastrous consequences.

Re: Bush Can't Protect Us (letter to the editor, La Cañada Valley Sun, Sept. 16): I too am greatly saddened about the 1,000 plus young men and women who have given their lives for the war on terrorism in Iraq. Let us also not forget the almost 3,000 Americans who died on September 11, the day that marked the start of this war. I can't believe any thinking American would refer to this as a war "for the enrichment of a few." This is a war to protect America and our way of life.
