Remembering the Simple Things in a Crisis
Terrorism is a nightmare wrapped in a stolen banner. By Michael Wolfe
As I write, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City have crumbled before our eyes, we have seen a plane pass through a skyscraper, and the Pentagon has been pierced to its inner courtyard. Tens of thousands of people are presumed dead and injured, other airplanes are down or missing, schools and public buildings are closed across the country, and Americans are stunned. For many of us it is as though this tragedy had occurred, not hundreds or thousands of miles away, but in our family rooms at home.
