Despite the economic difficulties our nation faces ($16 trillion in debt, unemployment and underemployment perhaps approaching 20%, the … Read More
As I write this post, a continuation of my article begun on August 19, my mind can’t help but drift toward the events of eleven years ago on September 11, 2001. The images of commercial aircraft plunging headlong into the sides of the World Trade Center are seared into my memory as I am sure they are yours.
