This is a repost of what I posted in 2008, and it remains just as poingant today as it did then, and the year before, and the year before that. As time has passed, we indeed seem to be losing our collective memory about this horrible day and the challenge it poses for us even years after this horrific tragedy. I remain committed to the fight to end terrorism like that visited upon us not so long ago, and hope you remain committed as well. If we should waver in this battle we did not want, in this battle we still have not finished, our children will have to fight and die in this battle we did not finish. Our parents and grandparents finished the challenges they faced, saving our generation from revisiting the trials they faced and setting the example for us that we need to live up to.
We should do no less. Let’s win the war on terrorism, and ensure our children never have to live through what we did.
