I was going to say something snarky today, but I think a better use of this time and space would be to point you over at Chris who has some useful things to say about the 5th anniversary of September 11th.
Weâ€™re going to hear a lot of speeches from a lot of people today. I am fearful that many of them will reflect where we are, rather than where we need to be. We stand as a nation and a world sharply divided, with the focus on the minutiae of day-to-day struggles for tactical advantage over one another. We need to be a nation and a world united and focused on a strategic vision to build the world our ancestorsâ€™ struggles demand and our inheritors deserve.
