Never forget

Lileks:

Right after the towers fell, people who’d never liked them as architecture wanted them back just as they were. Get back up in the sky! But it hasn’t happened. Even if they build the replacement towers, there’s still a space in the sky where no one will ever stand again. We could stand there once. That we couldn’t stand there eight years ago was their fault. That we cannot stand there today is ours.

I hope I’m wrong, but it will happen again.

God help us.

    Fausta, no doubt you are correct. It will happen again. It would have happened again and again already if it weren’t for the brave, intelligent, and hard-working people fighting to keep us safe. This includes those in the the military, CIA, FBI, police forces around the nation, and security at ports, airports, trains, laboratories, and borders. I’m sure there are many others I’m missing in my list as well. It is important to keep in mind the vigilance they keep and the sacrifices they make so that we live safely and soundly.
