Let us hope that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is correct in the words he spoke at Ground Zero last Thursday, the seventh anniversary of the tragic terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. The date 9/11, Bloomberg said, "lives forever in our hearts and our history, a tragedy that unites us in a common memory and a common story, the day that began like any other and ended as none ever has."

Let us hope that is, indeed, true, that our nation will forever remember that solemn tragedy and continue to honor those who lost their lives or who were injured on that day and in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars that have followed.
