A new song titled, 'This Side Of The Dirt" and the accompanying video for it will be available soon!
It's the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.
It's the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.
It's the Soldier, not the politicians that ensures
Our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
It's the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.
Have a safe and peaceful Veteran's Day
"Today, I remember the unimaginable attacks that took place 14 years ago. I remember the flames and smoke shooting out of the Twin Towers. I remember the brave New York Firefighters and Police Officers running into the Towers, as people were fleeing for their very lives.
I remember watching the television in horror as people were making the conscience decision to leap from windows high above the city, rather than burn to death.
I remember the profound sadness, as well as rage and anger as the Towers each collapsed in turn.
I remember the days and weeks of the pile of rubble at Ground Zero, smoking and smoldering and the ever present determination of the rescuers to locate and extract any victim that might still be alive. I remember when a fallen Firefighter or Police Officer was discovered and all rescue operations briefly suspended as they paid a silent tribute to their fallen comrade.
I remember the known and unknown signing up to be United States military members, to go hunt down the ones responsible for that day. America's warriors were sent to not only fight for the victims of the attack but to protect the living and ensure our way of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
But in the midst of the pain and the agony and the anguish, I remember the pride I felt as America became a truly united nation. The sight of American Flags were everywhere and even in our deepest, darkest hour, our light and spirit shined brightly.
Today, I remember all of this.
But more than simply remembering, I choose to honor the dead and their families by continuing to live my life with NO fear, love with purpose, and carry on steadfastly.
God bless America."
Daniel recently composed and recorded a song entitled, "Love Done Right" for his parents' wedding anniversary.
