On September 11th

Today is the first anniversary of the September 11th tragedy on which I have my own personal podium. I would like to use it to say something poignant or momentous in commemoration of the day that changed so many of us. Alas, nothing comes to mind. Whatever little eloquence I might possess, it utterly deserts me at the first whiff of such somber occasion.

So, instead, I refer you to my friend Brian, his first anniversary essay, fourth anniversary thoughts, and this year’s reflections.

I am a convinced atheist, but there is no other phrase that is more appropriate today than this:

God Bless America!
