All These Moments

All These Moments

Random ramblings in writing.

Monday, September 11, 2006


It seems like something should be written about 9/11, but I don't really feel like I can do it much justice. There are certainly a lot of questions to be asked five years later. Should we have gone to war? (Obviously, anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool.) Was Iraq the right first step in the War on Terror? (I don't think so.) Are we much now than we were then? (I think so.)

I'm not entirely certain about my answers to these questions except the first. When a nation is attacked like we were, it must respond. An attack on our own soil, a massacre of our own citizens. We cannot just move on with our lives without a response to those who did this to us.

My school actually acknowledged the importance of 9/11 this year, unlike last year. Today our usual moment of silence was in remembrance of the attacks.
