There are so many things that are incredibly sad about the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2011. And so many that are frustrating to the point of being nearly depressing.
The worst part of it all, in my humble opinion, is that the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq – regardless of whether they were just or not – are still going on. All you need to do is watch the news and listen to the names and, more importantly, the ages, of the soldiers still dying there to know that something is wrong. Twenty-one year old soldiers dying in the war on terror, in any country, must hardly remember where they were or what they were doing ten years ago. I don’t think it’s acceptable and it certainly isn’t right.
So, rest in peace and know that you are still loved… innocent victims of terror in the World Trade Centers, the Pentagon, and a lonely field in Shanksville.
But rest in peace and know that you are still loved… soldiers dying today for an atrocity ten years ago.
