Bush Marks 9/11 With Moment of Silence

Nina, Sonja, and I were reading the news this morning and we saw the story "Bush Marks 9/11 With Moment of Silence". 

And I said, in my nicest and sugariest voice, "Isn't that sweet, he's finally reacting to the events of 9/11/01."

And then Sonja topped me in my ridicule and said, "Wait, do they mean a moment of silence today, or do they mean the moment of silence 7 years ago when he sat in his limo cowering and waiting for his Daddy to tell him what to do?"

It's a beautiful day in NYC today, a beautiful day for a tribute.  The feeling that there are 3,000 souls who were wrongfully murdered about a mile from here is, has always been, and probably will always be, disconcerting to me.  In the beginning I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to honor them.  I finally reached the conclusion that no honor will ever do them justice.

And to that, Nina adds, "No honor will ever do them justice except justice itself.  The only true way to honor the victims of the tragedy is to bring those responsible to justice and prevent something this cowardly from ever happening again."

"Although," she says, "an extra can of food might help the cause."
