Sep. 11 + 3 Years
Three years have pasted since al Qaeda's greatest accomplishment and the signing of its death warrant. While the country is still at war, at home we have enough normalcy to have elections. What that says is America is stronger than al Qaeda's Islamist ideology. We survived attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. and will survive a highly polarized election. They hit us, but we're hitting them back again and again and again.
Some will forget Sep. 11, 2001. We are just humans who sometimes get our values and priorities mixed up. The rest of us must do our best to remind the forgetters what America faced, how we persevered, and who our heroes were.
