    If only it were that simple…

    I hope that works.

    I hope his little ceremony soothes our souls and restores the light.

    And I also hope,
    as his little impromptu torch falls to Earth…
    that he doesn’t set some unsuspecting pedestrian’s hair on fire.

    I’ll keep my anger, thank you very much. Justice requires it.

    Not justice — vengeance. Justice requires cool intelligence and detached impartiality; personal anger and a lust for revenge undermines both.
    .
    Holding on to anger and resentment only makes you the slave of the one you’re angry at — you’re wasting your time and energy on them without hurting them in the slightest, and they can yank your chain whenever they want to. It’s true, you know, that “living well is the best revenge”…but you can’t do that unless and until you let go.

    Can’t hurt.

    Might just try it, myself.

    You idealists need to remember that we still have enemies, and no ‘turning of the cheek’ will satisfy there need to destroy America. That doesn’t mean we need to hate our enemies…but never forget that we have enemies and must be vigilant against their evil intent!

    Thank you for saying what I was thinking and saying it so well.

    What happened 10 years ago was an atrocity perpetrated by misguided, evil men. Our reaction to that atrocity has led to the loss of our moral integrity, the curtailment of our freedom, the bankrupting of our economy and the brutalisation of yet another generation of young people. We cannot win this fight against the evil of “9/11”. We had already lost it within months of the attack, trading our strength and our liberty while enriching a few unprincipled people in our own society, all in the name of showing who was “number one”.

    @dmillerp — That’s simply not true. No one person is evil. Everyone has goodness in them. All it takes is for one side to take the initiative and turn the other cheek, and then wonderful things will happen. We need to let go our hate, and confront our enemies’ hatred and intolerance with love, freedom, and tolerance. Thanks, Lemont.

    And when will this “justice” be achieved? We killed Bin Laden, right? And what about the 1.7 Million innocent Iraqi citizens killed when we started a war that had nothing to do with 9/11? Should their survivors seek justice/vengeance against us now? They sure seem justified.

    Well said.

    Next take a sheet and write “blame America first” “anti-government paranoia”and “extremist Islamic terrorists who still are trying to kill Americans.” Set it on fire and throw it off the top of a building. Maybe that will make them go away too.

    The only justice would be to address the root causes of terrorism.

    Now that’s freedom. Thank you again, Mr. Bell.
