Yesterday was the hijacking/attacks on the NYC World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Apart from the incomprehensible human tragedy associated with events like these is how it makes every other interest and pursuit look so petty.
Does trying to get on with life disrespect the people who have suffered such loss? Or does stopping everything let the terrorists 'win' an even greater victory?
Like always, I'm going to be wishy-washy and split the difference, and stop with the wacky links and quotes, but maybe only for a day or so.
