Four Years On
It's that most awful of anniversaries today. Four years and a million miles away it is a day that the country takes stock, remembers the dead from that tragic day, and looks forward to healing our nation.
We'd like to report that the four years since that disaster had unified us and made us determined to move ahead into a better future. Instead, we have a new disaster and a polarization of our populace like we haven't seen since the Civil War.
Our sincere hope is that our President begins listen to what more than half of his country is telling him and start dealing with real problems instead of pretending as though they don't exist. We call on him to make good on his famous campaign promise of being a "uniter not a divider". If he doesn't, we fear the next anniversary of this tragedy will see even worse turmoil than already grips us.
And that would be the biggest tragedy of all.
