Today marks the 7th anniversary of the terrible bombings of the Twin Towers and Pentagon. In the years since then, we have commemorated the tragedy on each of those grim annual markers (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007), and the progression of our thoughts mirror the national mood as it transitions from trauma to reflection.
We have now had seven years to consider these events. We have been discussing and debating their meaning and consequences. Since 2001, we've had three national elections and are less than two months from electing a new leader. He will inherit a world shaped in no small part by those events. What do you think we've learned? Have we taken away the right lessons? What steps still remain? Share your thoughts.
