September 11th

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States.  Islamic fundamentalists crashed four planes, killing thousands of people, and literally, bringing America to its knees.  A tragedy beyond description.

My heart does go out to anyone who lost a loved one on this dark day in history, and also to all Americans, who felt the enormous sense of disbelief and sorrow as we watched the world trade center crumble into history.

I have endured tragedy and loss, personally.  I know what it feels like.

I also know that being enmeshed in sorrow, grief and anger tends to cloud and distort reality. 

I revert to what I know to be true.  A nation engaged in humanitarian endeavors need never worry about such things as terrorist attacks.  America has ceased to be the "good guy" for decades. 

Let us remember those who died and honor them.  Their deaths were unnecessary, unimaginable and unfair.

But let us also remember that America engages in behaviors that cause other nations to hate us.  We, as an imperialistic nation, also played a role in the September 11th terrorist attack. 

The intergalactic constable claims we're all responsible.
