When I think about 9/11 it's personal. It's not geo-politics. I didn't lose anyone I know but I had family in Manhattan. They were there, and in their usual style, ended up in the middle of it. At the time, I saved their e-mails and they were an alternate 'Williams News Service' for my extended family and friends.|
My family's dispatches from NYC
Reading my own reaction (at the bottom of the first page) I think I feel the same way now as I did then. 9/11 was an act of violence that should be a lesson in the importance of peace-making. Early on in the Iraq war, President Bush, in off-the-cuff remarks at the White house said "Fundamentally, this war is about peace."
I guess we still need to work on learning that lesson.
