Never forget


Never forget.

And two other things:

1. Straighten out those who would deny the real cause of the events. If you can't convince those who think it was forces OTHER than terrorists who did this, at least keep them from convincing others. I shudder to think of a future generation with a twisted vision of what actually happened.

2. DON'T call it "Patriot Day." I realize that this is perhaps a bit of a personal crochet of mine, but I think that name sanitizes it too much - glosses over the real horror. This is the Anniversary of September 11, 2001.

On the other hand, the good:

We have not had an attack on our soil since then. Things are getting better in Iraq despite what the news says. Many of the sponsors or promoters of terrorism are dead or in prison.

But we must stay strong.

Great perspective. Yup, the flip calendar on my desk at work says today is "Patriot Day." I guess "Eff Off, Terrorists Day" was a little ungainly.
