PATRIOTIC SPIRIT DRIVES COP'S TREK

Frenchtown Patolman Robert Mulligan has taken off across the United States in his patriotically-painted 1966 Pontiac Catalina, to raise money for and awareness of the children of victims of the 9/11 terorrist attacks.

Mulligan left Ground Zero in New City on Tuesday morning for San Francisco, and will return to New York on June 30. He has contacted mayors of 20 cities along the way, from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to Shanksvill, Pa and hopes they will roll out the red carpet for him.

"Cruising because we can.."

Cruising because we can.. - What's that mean to you? 

To me, as a Vietnam Veteran who spent most of my 20th year far from home, in a country where the people did not have such freedom, it reminds me that we CAN cruise our country because we have the freedom to do so. Many people in the world do not have such a freedom. Whether they are restricted by poverty, fear or an oppressive government, they lack a basic freedom that we most often take for granted as a right as Americans.

"Cruising because we can... "

Remember that, and appreciate it. Try it some time. This is an amazing continent, and this land is your land. Freedom to travel the entire continent from east to west and back again is a precious right that we could lose if we take it too much for granted...
