The Attack

I still feel quite numb over the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. I try to force myself to wrap my mind around the enormity of the tragedy, but it seems impossible.

My brother & wife live in DC. I have lots of friends in NYC. Hell, I was in New York last week. Thankfully they are all safe.

I don't have anything much write that hasn't been covered elsewhere. My brother has written a good account of his experiences.

Whiel I would like to strike back against the enemy THEM, all I can really do is fly the American flag in front of my house as a symbol that America endures even through this crisis.

So I go back to work and move forward. If I stop and become afraid, then the terrorists have won.
