I have a lot of things to talk about (having gotten somewhat backed up during the recent downtime), but I'm putting them on hold for one more day in honor of the victims of the 9/11 attacks, four years ago today. Last year on this day, I asked readers to tell me their stories of where they were and/or what they were doing when they found out about the attacks. If you're new to the Musings since then, feel free to add your own response either in today's comments or the ones from last year.
Oh, and on the subject...did anyone catch the documentary on Flight 93 that the Discovery Channel showed tonight? I was quite disappointed to realize I'd missed it; for one thing, Flight 93 is a compelling story of ordinary people turned into heroes by extraordinary circumstances, and besides that, one of the passengers on that flight was the sister of a high-school classmate of mine (and it was rather haunting to watch the 9:00 news tonight and hear her name alone be called out in footage of a ceremony at the site near Shanksville, Pennsylvania). Anyway, I was wondering if anyone got to see it and if there were plans to air it again.
May we never forget...and may nothing of this nature or scope ever happen on American soil again.
