A Better Mid-South: National pride

Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

As we mark the 14th anniversary of 9/11, I am struck by the emotion this anniversary evokes throughout our country.

I like to remember the silver linings from that horrendous day-- like firefighters and police officers running toward ground zero to help people.

Remember how we celebrated our first responders.

Remember how we came together as one nation, united in our mission to protect our country from terrorists.

Remember how we prayed for our country and how we came together no matter what color, gender or age to celebrate the United States of America.

What happened to all of that? It's sad that today our country is now torn apart on several fronts, including our treatment and attitude towards law enforcement officers.

How do we get back to that time of national pride?

Tell me how. Send me an email at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or post a message on my Facebook page.

Having pride in our country will make this A Better Mid-South and a better country.
