In Memoriam, September 11, 2001

I will never forget.

It’s been 19 years and I still find myself deeply saddened every September 11. It’s a feeling that never goes away although, although time has lessened the raw emotion.

I’ve written reams of words about 9/11 and actually find myself with nothing to say this year. My focus is November 3, 2020, not September 11, 2001. While 9/11 wrought a fundamental change in America and in the world, November 3 is the day that determines whether we go forward as a constitutional republic or as a socialist state. The past may still be a gaping wound, and I will never stop mourning the dead, but it’s the future that matters to me and my children.

Here are some of my past posts if you care to read them:
