VICTORY AT GROUND ZERO!Yesterday, Governor George Pataki, (R-NY) announced that the International Freedom Center, which has been a source of controversy and offense to many, will NOT be built at Ground Zero in New York.
As a result of that decision, The group representing the IFC made the following statement:
"We are deeply disappointed that the will could not be found to continue the development of the International Freedom Center at this hallowed site. We do not believe there is a viable alternative place for the IFC at the World Trade Center site. We consider our work, therefore, to have been brought to an end."After reading that, my first reaction was to revise that lovely ditty from the Wizard of Oz:
"Ding Dong the witch is dead. Which old witch? The Freedom Center.... Ding Dong the wicked witch is dead!"
This is a victory for truth. A victory for America and a victory for every person who cared enough to get involved.
In times past, it would not have been possible. The "mainstream" media would not have presented our point of view. Let this victory be a lesson for what victories we might achieve in the future on other issues of importance.
To everyone who helped get this message out, take a moment and pat yourselves on the back. Job well done. Now, let's build on this victory and go win another one!
