(bowing head) Johhny-Oh, you've said it. You've done a hell of a job summarizing my feelings. Thanks, man.

I'll have to come back later to check your other stuff.

Thanks again, bro.

Yes...As I read, I was nodding my head. I told this to someone once, it changed me for better or for worse. I don't know yet. But they did take from me that thing that I was so proud of. I had never looked at another human being and considered their color, their origins, their culture before I considered them worthy of my trust. Today, everytime I look at someone that might even remotely be from the middle east, I try to discern their motives for being where they are, being what they are.

I did not lose anyone I knew in the attacks, but I did lose part of me.

That was enough.

Excellent work.

Well said. We're "used" to terrorism over here. My Dad narrowly escaped being killed by the I.R.A on three occasions. That was just from being a normal commuter going in to London every day for 30 years. Someone up there likes him...

911 was something else. I'll never forget, and I'll raise our daughter to remember. Thanks for that.

My boys will never remember what it was like before 9/11. This is all they know.

Excellent post.
