Never Forget........http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shgSLKb-onA for Joan Boaz singing this song I learned as a 15 year old and never forgot the special meaning it held.

Party Recon's comment, September 17, 2013 1:24 PM
The biggest fallacy generated by 9-11 was the meme, "This changes everything". The only thing 9-11 changed was the scope of our civil liberties. They shrunk a great deal that day.

That being said, Americans themselves have carried out acts of terrorism in the name of freedom (see Boston Tea Party) and security (see, Japanese Interment) since the birth of our nation. Additionally, the ease of mobility afforded a free society allows the bad guys to operate efficiently and effectively (see, OK City and Boston Marathon bombings).

As such, America is much better served by remembering its REAL history and not that which is white-washed (pun intended here) by the victors who get to frame it. If we don’t, how will we avoid repeating it? Kudos to the author and everyone else for sharing this story. Those who speak the truth cannot be considered anything less than patriotic.

Our democracy needs an upgrade.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

......."I recently joined Lessig's citizen-funded MAYDAY.US campaign, an ambitious experiment to win a Congress committed to ending corruption in 2016, and we did something amazing: We raised $1 million dollars in 12 days. That's a ton of money, but it's not enough.

We're raising $5 million more by July 4, and I'm writing to my friends and family to ask if you can help us get the rest of the way there. If all of us who have supported the campaign so far each recruit just five matching pledges, we'd easily hit that goal. But I'd like to see if I can recruit ten of my friends to donate. So my question is: will you be one of those ten?"  ------ FDW
