September 11, 2001

Six years later and far too many people have forgotten that day. Not the events. We'll never forget the events. But rather the feelings they had. Six years later and people like Kim Jong Ill and Ahmadinejad are seen as comedic. People we should make jokes about. I'm guilty of it myself. We see or hear a tape by bin Laden or Zawahiri and it's "Oh, another tape. What crazy thing is he spouting this time?" I'm guilty of that as well. Six years later and we've become too complacent and lazy. And when we do try to be vigilant it's called profiling and we're called racist. We will be attacked again. It will happen. And we're going be asking ourselves why. How did this happen? Who dropped the ball?. And my answer, our answer, should be to look in the mirror.
