10th Anniversary of 9/11!


I've been watching lots of shows commemorating the 10th anniversary of September 11th. National Geographic Channel has especially done a phenomenal job. Below are just some of the programs they have aired, and it looks like they will re-air all of them on September 11th:
--Giuliani's 9/11
--George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview
--9/11: Where Were You?
--Witness DC 9/11
--Inside 9/11-Zero Hour
--Inside 9/11-War on America
--Inside 9/11-The War Continues
--Inside Al Qaeda



Rich Lowry's A Decade of Heroes:
When there’s a danger — and especially when there’s a war — there’s no substitute for the courage that has been the stuff of legend and of national honors down through the centuries. The brute fact is that most of us aren’t capable of it — for us courage is, in Miller’s words, “a glorious and admonishing phantom.” We can only stand in uncomprehending awe of the acts of the truly courageous.

Why did Jay Jonas and his unit in the North Tower of the World Trade Center, evacuating as it was on the verge of collapse, stop to carry out a distressed woman even though it slowed their escape? Why did a band of passengers on Flight 93 storm the cockpit of their hijacked plane? Why did Jason Dunham, Ross McGinnis, and Michael Monsoor — all Medal of Honor winners from the Iraq War — throw themselves on grenades to save their comrades?

Ask a firefighter such a question and he’s liable to answer, “That’s just what we do.” What we do, in turn, is express our astonishment and gratitude.
