Happy Independence Day, America! What a grateful nation we should be, especially on a day like today. Megyn Kelly had a group of 14 wounded warriors on her show to inspire us all. And to remind us why we are so grateful for the freedoms we have. It is because of men like this that we can celebrate being an American on this beautiful day.
And thank you to the West Point Glee Club who accompanied Trace on this song. If you don’t need a tissue while watching this video, you don’t have a soul. God bless our men and women who have served, and continue to provide us the freedoms we so often take for granted.
And a BIG thank you to Trace Adkins. Love you, man.
The Commandant of the Marine Corps and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps present the 236th Marine Corps birthday message and honor the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and how the events shaped the lives of Marines past and present.
When all else fails, and you need results.. call in the United States Marines. Hooah!
Today on such a solemn occasion, Megyn Kelly was on the air for an extended weekend version of America Live to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01. This has to be one of the most poignant and moving segments of any of the shows today, and of course it had to be on the best daytime cable show, Megyn Kelly’s America Live.
Megyn’s guest was Alice Hoagland, who is the mother of Mark Bingham (although the chyron, I believe, incorrectly indicated his name as Matt Bingham), one of the heroes of United flight 93, and she has been one of the most vocal proponents of the heroes of flight 93.
Bingham, along with Jeremy Glick and Todd Beamer, were just 3 of the stalwart patriots who decided to take charge and be the deciders of their own fates. They all knew they were probably going to die, but refused to let it happen on the terrorists’ terms. They recruited as many willing passengers aboard United 93 as they could to gather with them, collect make-shift weapons, and summon the courage and will to rush the terrorists, reclaim the cockpit and control of the airplane, and most likely save the lives of hundreds on the ground in D.C. They did so selflessly, probably knowing all too well their fates were sealed.
