I wanted to post this yesterday, but had a hard time putting it into words. I do think it's important for us not to forget the events of 9/11/01 - not that anyone alive on that day ever could. I think the thing I remember most about that day is sitting in shock in front of the TV thinking that nothing would ever be the same. I think the nation, and probably the world, was forever changed on that day. Probably the biggest change for Americans is that we live with a new sense of fear and paranoia that we had never really experienced before. I'm sure many other nations have experienced that fear for decades, but it was new to us. We lost our innocence on that day. I wonder if we'll ever get it back.
