Brian Terry’s birthday. If he had not been cut down by bullets provided to a Mexican drug cartel by his own government, Agent Brian Terry would have celebrated his forty-third year on the planet this past Sunday. Unlike the members of this administration and its Justice Department, he exemplified honor and faithfulness to the values upon which this nation was founded. One way of reciprocating the honor he showed his fellow citizens is by continuing to hold our government to account for the misdeeds which led to Agent Terry’s death.
Although commemorating his life and honoring his name are both commendable, the best tribute to his life and work would be to continue it in his name. You can start by going to the website of the Brian Terry Foundation, an exemplary organization dedicated to ensuring that Agent Terry’s death will not be in vain.
