Never Forget

by Joyce

It's hard to believe it's been eight years. To me, it seems like yesterday. A phone call at work from one of my co-worker's wives.

"Quick! Go turn on the TV!"

I did.

We watched in the squad room as one of the Twin Towers burned. A tragic accident.

Then the second plane hit. Not an accident.

Then the Pentagon.

Then Shanksville. Flight 93. The heroic actions of the passengers. Saved the Capitol. Or the White House.

Never forget.

Those who forget are foolish.

Thanks, Joyce.

We'd also do well to remember, in light of all the changes to this nation since 9/11/01, that everything we needed to stop the attacks was in place that day, and those in a position to stop it failed to do so, from government officials to airport security personnel.

There's a difference between vigilance and paranoia.
