A Day of Remembrance

It is hard to believe that it has been seven years since a horrible tragedy struck NYC on a day much like today.

On a morning much like today I was sitting at work when the news broke - a plane struck one of WTC towers. Someone pulled a television from the test lab and set it out where people could watch and suddenly we were riveted in disbelief to an unfolding live horror story, sure that somehow this had to be some sort of Welles-ian joke. Even when prodded by management to not make that the focus of our day we all kept wandering back to take in the ongoing news coverage - or surreptitiously checked whatever newsfeeds we could get over the internet.

Today is not about politics. Today is not about our petty squabbles or minor upsets. There are real problems in the world, and real heroes that go out to make a difference. Remember what precepts our country was founded on, and remember those who sacrifice themselves to make this world, and this nation, a better and a safer place. May God bless us all.
