we remember... hell, how could we forget?
On this 10th anniversary of the day things changed I want to say something awesome or poignant or bittersweet or, at the least, encouraging.
But I can't. I got nothing.
Ironic since I study 9/11 literature and am working on a novel about that day.
All I can say is that some sad, crazy, Man's-inhumanity-to-Man shit happened that day, the likes of which we'll likely see again.
I guess instead of Patriot day, we should call it "The Week we all got along Day."
We've gotten our revenge sevenfold. Let's try to get back that spirit of cooperation we had early on. Let's get back to the feeble advances against racism, sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia that we had made before 9/11.
If we can't do that, then the terrorists really WILL have won.
