4 Dedication This project is dedicated to all the Americans who have died fighting for my freedom. In the 226 years that the United States has existed, many people believed in freedom so much that they died fighting to save the United States from our enemies. On September 11, 2001, freedom began to mean something to me. I saw planes hitting buildings filled with people who were free to earn money for their families. The planes were driven by people who force women to hide behind veils and children to die before they turn five because they can’t visit a doctor. To all the children who lost parents on September 11th in our War Against Terrorism: I think you are heroes of the best kind. God will help you grow up without a mother or a father and still be the best you can be. Love, Kirsten S.
