All of us who were alive on September 11, 2001 will remember the tragic scenes of planes exploding into buildings and the heroic flight that sadly ended in the fields of western Pennsylvania. Most forget the previous attack on the World Trade Center that was the precursor to that day.

I wonder why we were so quick to just categorize that first attack as a criminal action? I wonder if the current attitude is leading us towards even more danger? When will our leadership wake up to the real dangers we face?
