Stephen Kruiser has some reflections on the anniversary, as does Glenn. As Stephen notes, there are now young adults who have very little memory of that day. In some ways, the changes that event wrought in the nation were greater than those from Pearl Harbor (my grandparents were about the same age for that event as I was on 911). Unfortunately, few of them were for the better. Next year, for the twentieth anniversary, I hope that the current crises will be in the rear-view mirror, but I fear that they won’t be, regardless of the outcome of the election.
