I don't really know what to say, but it feels wrong to me to let this day pass without acknowledging the terrible event on 9/11.

I don't want to do this in a partisan way. Like most people, I have some partisan leanings and I have a worldview that informs and is informed by my perspective on 9/11. But I want to acknowledge 9/11 without generating any controversy or strife.

So all I will say now is that I truly hope for a world where this sort of thing does not happen. Both the 9/11 attack and the aftermath. It is such a waste. Of time, energy, money. And, perhaps, most importantly, of human potential.

Our hearts and minds should be devoted to more noble pursuits.

One day...
