As If We Could Forget
I relived those hours last night when I watched 911 Ten Years Later, a live recording of the event. If you missed it, this is a remarkable film, a reminder of why we declared war on terrorism, of why I have no respect for the statesmen who deny today the invasion they voted for ten years ago, of why I respect the awesome bravery of our firemen who were able to pull only one survivor from the carnage, but
saved 20,000 people that day 343 of their own died along with some 3000 innocents.
And the deaths go on ten years later as toxins breathed in from the debris are killing members of the rescue teams and most likely civilians too that were close to ground zero that sunny September morning.
