In time.

Sunday, September 11th, 2011 @ 10:13 am | Politics

A decade later it seems to me that we survived the immediate damage of 9/11 just fine, as devastating as it was. Most of our real problems in the past decade have been self-inflicted. We feared too much and thought too little. We ended up losing more lives and money invading the wrong country. We lost more liberty trying to be safe than bin Laden ever took from us. We multiplied our enemies to get to a few.

This decade should stand as proof of the folly of fear, the weakness of letting terrorists have so much power over us. We should expect another 9/11, we should expect many of them. We should take a vow today to let none of them hurt us that way again. We won’t retaliate blindly, shred our constitution, or hate our Muslim neighbors again. We will show real strength, that our remaining enemies shall despair for a foothold into our hearts.

    We don’t hate our Muslim neighbors, we abhor the senseless acts of terror that took place ten years ago.
