On chance, my son and I found ourselves near to the 9/11 memorial.
I had to see it.
It was moving, sad and disheartening. This was an attack, just as Pearl Harbor was an attack. But then we fought a country, now we fight a fraction, a group of ululating religious fanatics which are elusive, difficult to find and hidden among the populous.
Just as war changed when the Brit's fought the new Americans- who did not 'charge' but used Native American tactics of hiding behind trees or other unusual methods- at least new for that time. We need a new strategy to combat the terrorists in today's world. The person who can solve that will move us into a new way of dealing with these evil people who use their god as an excuse to kill.
War, as usual, is not the answer. Feelings of outrage, anger, disappointment, and sadness enveloped me,
so many feelings, some conflicting, I had to share it here.
