Just…don’t forget.

Normally we’ll do an essential Violent Blue on Wednesdays. Today is different.

The September 11th attacks happened days after I got married. I was on my honeymoon and I remember it more vividly than usual.

Pearl Harbor wasn’t during my lifetime. That’s still not a good reason to forget it, but a lot of us do. A lot of years, I do.

I won’t forget September 11th. Forget the politicizing, the conspiracy theories. Just remember the victims, and don’t forget, there are people out there who mean us harm, there always will be as long as we remain the greatest bastion of freedom in the world.
