September 11, 2013

I don’t want to come across all pseudo-patriotic or anything like that, and I don’t want to put the wrong emphasis on things, but I do want to use this little space today for a single purpose… to pause in remembrance of the heroism and the great evil that took place 12 years ago, today. 

The events of September 11, 2001 changed this country forever.  Lives and politics were changed alike, and things so many of us took for granted have been cast into doubt… liberties, security, political viewpoints, and more.  I think it’s fair to say we’re still reeling, and still changing as a result of that day. 

I could go on, and on some more, but I won’t. What I’ll do instead is reflect a little, and hope that each of you will do the same.  For better or worse, I believe we still live in the strongest, best country in the world.  And despite our differences, political, philosophical, or whatever… despite all that, we’re all in this together.  Let’s appreciate that for a minute or two, before we go on with our daily business.
