This master’s thesis is a compilation of "short stories" which share one common theme, the immediate and long-term protection, preservation and prosperity of my country, the United States of America. I embarked on this journey to obtain a Master of Arts in Management and Homeland Security because I am truly concerned about my children’s future, the future of the United States of America, and the future of the world as a whole. On September 11, 2001, the world caught a glimpse of true evil and witnessed death and destruction as it was carried out by focused and motivated enemies.
I have dedicated my career to the protection and service of the community and for the last six years, I have trained, prepared and molded the law enforcement profession through training new and seasoned police and peace officers in and around Westchester County, New York. Terrorism is not limited to a single country or region of the world. It needs to be confronted, stopped, investigated, fought and prevented on a global scale, because if a terrorist(s) succeeds anywhere in the world, it is a failure for us all.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing."
