Never Forget; Never Forgive
Nine years ago, 19 murderous thugs practicing the teachings of their religion (which is NOT a religion of peace, unless you count the peace of the dead they leave scattered in their wake) killed nearly 3,000. Sadly, I think it's going to have to happen again (at least once) before we take the threat seriously. Certainly the current administration does not. Sadly most of our citizens do not either. But the proof is there in the empty hole in the New York skyline (and why in the name of all that is good and right in the world haven't we managed to rebuild?) for anyone who is willing to look. The fact that we are not serious does not mean our enemies aren't--they are. And they will be back unless they are stopped first. Will we do that? It sure doesn't look like it.
That is the greatest tragedy of this sad anniversary.
