This blog is nearly five years old, and I've never really written about 9/11. I likely never will. Others can, and have done it better. I once read that "Unless you were buried under rubble, no one cares where you were 9/11." It was a horrible, fear filled day. I know some who feel the images of 9/11 should be replayed on a regular basis, to remind people of what happened, how we have to be careful, how we have to fight terrorism. For me, the pictures are unnecessary. I remember. We'll leave it at that.
I watched quite a bit of Wednesday's Walter Cronkite memorial service on the internet. I thought Tom Brokaw was fantastic, but Bob Schieffer showed a tremendous mix of class, reverence, and humor. If you can find it, take a look. You won't be sorry.
