Remember the victims of September 11

Last year in this journal I wrote about how I found out about the tragic events of September 11, 2001. This year I am stopping to think of the victims of that tragedy. Close to 3,000 perished on that tragic day, but we should also remember the first responders who later succumbed to illness caused by breathing the toxic air. Right now I have the TV in the background listening to names read at Ground Zero.

On this day we we should put aside the controversy over the mosque at Ground Zero. I am grateful to read that Pastor Terry Jones now says that he will never burn the Koran. We should not blame millions of peaceful Muslims for the actions of the few that planned and carried out the tragic events of September 11.
