Finally, after way too many years, the men and woman of this country who fought in WWII will be honored with the WWII Memorial. With WWII soldiers dying at a rate of about 1,056 a day, this should have come a long, long time ago. Both Bush and Kerry used their weekly radio addresses to talk about the sacrifices these men and women made for their country and people they didn't even know.
Bush said this about these brave men and women:
"The memorial will stand forever as a tribute to the generation that fought that war, and to the more than 400,000 Americans who gave their lives. Because of their sacrifice, tyrants fell, fascism and Nazism were vanquished and freedom prevailed."

John Kerry had this to say about President Bush:
"We must rebuild alliances that have been shredded, because an America respected in the world will be an America stronger in the world, and safer here at home."

Leave it to candidate waffles to slam the president on what is supposed to be about honoring the men and women of WWII. Anyway, I'm not sure if I have readers who fought during the war, but if one happens to pop by, Thank You for your sacrifices and Thank You for helping to make this country what it is today.
