September 11

Well, here it is. Seven years since the attacks on the World Trade Center, The Pentagon and what would have presumably been the White House (or some other part of Washington DC), if not for some brave Americans.

I wanted to say something of note but, over the years, I think most of what I would have said has been said.

The only addition I would make is that we should not forget, especially during this time of election, what kind of world it is out there. We have our cushy jobs and our happy homes but many of us rarely leave the enclave of our immediate neighborhood. But the world beyond is not safe and it is possible that it can and will intrude on our charmed lives.

Do not forget the events of September 11, 2001. Do not forget that there are still those out there who wish to do Americans harm for no other reason than because of their nationality.

And do not forget that making the world a better place starts at home. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Love your neighbor as yourself. Give and it shall be given.

As for more words concerning 9/11, I got nuthin.
