Memorial heartens college Republicans
September 21, 2007
I, on behalf of the College Republicans, want to thank the entire campus community for their overwhelming positive response to the 9-11 We Remember Project.
The aim of this project was simple, and I can tell you in one word: remembrance.
It is alarming how quickly America moves on from events even in recent memory.
Thank you UWRF!!
I do offer a challenge to those who disagreed with this project: improve it. It is so easy to be critical, and much harder to actually make a difference in life. And being an obstructionist isn’t making a difference.
I also challenge and ask the College Democrats of UWRF to distance themselves from the moveon.org ad against Gen. David Petraeus. It was shameful for a group to so arrogantly challenge a professional warrior’s patriotism and honesty, our country would be far better served by more men and women like Gen. Petraeus and fewer moveon.orgs.
