Today we remember the victims of 9/11. I have nothing particularly eloquent to say. I’m sure you can find that elsewhere. Mark makes his annual point.
The attacks have had an effect beyond the number of Americans killed. Hundreds of thousands have been killed in wars that were a direct result of 9/11. Our civil liberties have been trampled. Politicians have a new way to manipulate people into keeping them in power.
We should mourn all of these things.
