My prayers and good wishes for the families and loved ones of the victims, obviously. As for the rest… I am alive, the men who wanted to kill me and mine are largely dead, and that’s the way I wanted things to turn out. Lot of people call 9/11 a tragedy or a catastrophe: personally, I always saw it as an atrocity. And the American people have a way with dealing with people who commit atrocities. A very, very short way.
But I don’t want to dwell on our attackers. I want to go on with my life and eat my dinner, and only remember those who cannot share that dinner with me.
