Do you know where you were on 9/11/2001? I do.

On Monday, September 10, 2001, I was walking home from Union Station. I worked at the UN (in WDC) and was going home. It was a beautiful evening and I remember thinking, after reading reports about death and war from all over the world, that we were lucky in the United States. We are lucky that we have two giant oceans protecting us from all that death and violence.
