On this day of all days, I am filled with mixed emotions.  I always have been.  In my heart the loss of life and the grief is mixed with the anger of our involvement in other countries around the world finally coming back to harm us dearly.  Rather than participate in that type of discussion on this day, I will mourn our losses:  of our moral compass, of our fellow citizens, of the military who went to fight, of our sense of right and wrong, our innocence yet again, and mostly of our lack of actual fundamental change in the light of such a horrific tragedy.  I pray we never forget both what transpired on 9-11 (like this scenario) and what made it happen… lest we see consequences yet again.
