    However, I Think Most People Forget The Point

    In the wake of yet another community tragedy, it's occurred to me that for the most part, we're missing the point. In the weeks after 9/11, once the shock wore off, the world seemed to be a kinder place. People were more civilized. Being polite became the norm. There was...

    To a little 9-year old girl living in New York,

    9/11 changed everything. While thank God I did not lose anyone particularly close, my friends around me did. I was in my class with the son of the last man pulled out alive (Nicholas Cage would eventually portray him in a movie). To me, seeing my friends and elders cry touched...
