Patriot Day

Today is the third anniversary of the attacks upon the United States by a band of terrorists representing Al Qaeda. As expected, there were solemn ceremonies all over the country, remembering the victims and heroes from that day.

I couldn’t bear to watch the reading of the names of the victims — three hours in length. I couldn’t bear to see the clips replayed again.

It really is still a fresh wound, and is still more than our nation’s conscience should have to bear.
