Thoughts of September 11

Here's a Star Spangled Banner for you! Remember this whenever you see those protesting idiot athletes and celebrities making disrespectful fools of themselves.

The Baltimore Sun's headline for their beautiful editorial is The enduring loss of September 11, and we can all relate to these words:  "... a small thing in a quiet moment — a cloudless blue September sky, a glimpse of the Twin Towers in an old movie — can still bring back the flood of fear, sadness and uncertainty that we have never resolved, perhaps can never resolve.
So profoundly visceral are those memories, even at the remove of a decade and a half, that it is hard for many of us to comprehend the enduring pain of those who lost family members in the attacks. Sept. 11 was a national tragedy, but for the relatives of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed that day, it is a profoundly personal one. We lost an innocence, a sense of security. They lost mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters."

It always infuriates me when I hear people say that we talk about September 11 too much. If you ask me, we don't talk about it enough.
