It’s the day the world changed
When we learned who we are,
And united in strength and in sorrow
When we opened our eyes
And the lessons we learned
We will never forget… till tomorrow.
The memorials are indeed moving, and even the Sunday comics section has brought tears to my eyes, but I can’t help but notice that “the lessons of 9/11” have an uncanny tendency to be “I was right”, no matter what political or social position “I” happened to hold on 9/10.
