The 9-11 attack may be the question for my middle age that “where were you when John Kennedy was assassinated?” was in my youth. Osama bin Laden is now dead but the forces he helped to organize are still at work.
Take a moment to remember 11 years ago and hope that our children can live in less interesting times.

Update Sep-20-2012: I wrote “Osama bin Laden is now dead but the forces he helped to organize are still at work” the morning of Sep-11-2012 before a coordinated attack would leave our ambassador to Libya dead in Benghazi and the US embassy walls breached in Cairo and the US Flag torn down. This week has seen further attacks on our embassies in Yemen, Tunisia, and Pakistan, among others.
