When you walk around the mall nowadays, you will find a plethora of peace signs (or nuclear non-proliferation signs). Peace is en vogue again, as war has become decidedly out of fashion. The term "violence doesn’t solve anything" is being thrown around by pundits and parents alike.
No one desires peace more than the professional soldier, sailor, Marine or airman does, and no one knows more than our troops how important it is to engage with and destroy our nation's enemies.
It has become cliche to remind people of 9/11. We are going to go ahead and do it anyway. Many innocent civilians, as well as our brothers and sisters in the NYPD and FDNY lost their lives that day. Our enemies attacked us and killed our people, and no matter how much Americans like to wear four lines inside a circle, they are going to keep coming after us - unless we destroy them first.
The Ranger Up Patriot's Day T-Shirt commemorates the attack on our nation with the modern New York skyline with the proud members of the NYPD, FDNY and US Military reflected in the waterline. But the back does not dwell in the past - the back of the shirt reminds us of what is necessary in the future - of the battle our troops have taken over from the police and fire departments in NY and Washington DC.
Violence is not always the answer, but sometimes it is the only answer...
