Four Years Ago the World Changed


World Trade Center, Sept. 11, 2001


Take a moment to remember those who lost their lives 4 years ago, and to remember those who risk their lives today defending this country.

I was struck that day by how many people believed we were safe from terrorism. After the World Trade Center was bombed in 1993, I thought most people would have gotten over that fantasy, but it persisted until September 11th.

I don't think enough has been done in 4 years to ensure another attack does not happen. I think the best way to honor the dead would be to learn the lessons, and make sure that a repeat does not occur. I think we have learned most of the lessons, but there is not the political will in Washington to do what must be done.
