Since the horrible tragedy of that day, i have watched CNN way too much and been interested in all the news much more than usual, but have resisted the urge to research Nostradamus prophecies. It might scare me too much.
I understand that this will not be a simple war. I understand that even if we go to Afghanistan and assassinate Osama bin Laden, the other cells of terrorists throughout the world will still exist. And there are still governments (like the Taliban) who recognize him as some sort of hero. We know this is not the definition of heroism. Heroes don’t kill innocent people.
So this endeavor will be one of great detail and calculation and shrewdness. We are a society of Instant Gratification, and this will be our true test of patience. I hope America continues to feel united in the long months–and maybe years– to come.
Sympathy to all the families and Friends of the victims of the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks on New York Washington and Pennsylvania, and prayers for a Higher Power to touch these terrorists with love and remorse for their actions and wish for an end to terrorism.
