Never forgetting

On September 11, 2001 I watched the world change in front of my eyes, just as my father saw the world change when Sputnik went up on October 4, 1957, and his father listened to FDR’s "Day of Infamy" speech on December 8th, 1941. I have an edited version of Jewel’s "Hands" with all the sound bites from Sept. 11th on my iPod just to remind me how important eternal vigilance is.
