September 11

As some of you may recall, I already did a memorial post for one victim of 9/11 on the Jewish date of the attacks, the 23rd of Elul.


The best retrospective post I have seen on 9/11 came from Lawhawk at A Blog for All, who also updates about the rebuilding going on at Ground Zero. He visits there a lot more regularly than I do, and has many more pictures of the site than I have, many of which are in his post. A picture I took when I was in New York at the end of April appears above.

Unfortunately, with the passage of time, too many people have forgotten what happened on 9/11 or have tried to reinterpret it in ways that blame America and exonerate the terrorists. While that is not surprising in itself, how quickly it has happened and the viciousness with which it has occurred within the United States itself are astounding.

On September 20, 2001, President Bush told a joint session of Congress:
We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. (Applause.) From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.
It's time to make it happen.
