15 years ago ...

It was still early morning on Tuesday in Los Angeles, and my mother had the television on in the living room.  She was in the last weeks of her yearly summer visit, and the attacks occurred.

We cannot go back.  We cannot be the same.  It is simply not possible. 

They came, they attacked us, and they demonstrated a coordination we didn't believe they possessed. 

They will come again.  And more Americans will die because we stepped back from what should have been done to those responsible and those who aided and supported the evil-doers. 

It is sad.

In one of his writings, Hilaire Belloc wrote about the barbarians at the gate.  That was 1912.

They are now inside.
