10 Years Later….

It’s been 10 years since that day that changed the US.   Do you remember where you were?  How you felt?  If you were like most of us, you probably were totally shocked and in a fog for days. Then you were both sad and outraged.   It was good to see at least for a while the country come together, especially after the 2000 Presidential election. We were no longer Democrats or Republicans, Christians, Jews, or other religions, we were Americans.  We wanted to get the man who ordered the attacks, not knowing that it would take 10 years, lots of lives lost, and 2 wars that are still going on.  We tried to believe that not all Muslims agreed with the extremists.  Then after a while, the novelty went away.  Political divisions are back,  those who opposed expanding the war were called unpatriotic (it should be considered unpatriotic not to voice opposition if done calmly), all Muslims are being painted with the same brush as the terrorists, and we seem to be more divided then ever.  Hopefully, someday, we will have some sort of unity in this country.
