Ten years..... what can be said?

Was it really ten years ago we got hit?

I know there will be much said, the media will earn the respect they truly deserve, and some politicians will show their true color in the next day or so. It's already begun.

What can I add? So little, and of not much value. Our world changed that day. People died, good and bad. A page was added to the big human history book of the world.

What can I say? My thoughts are with those who selflessly did their duty.. many paying with their lives to do what they thought right. There will always be victims. There will always be someone who needs rescue, saving, a Hero.

Hero's... so often just a regular person thrown into extraordinary circumstances... are not built, are not made. What ever makes them run into the danger, rather than away.... that comes from within. It can't be taught.

It's also not a survival skill. So many Hero's reach that status shortly after they are killed doing what they think is right.

There will always be a shortage of Hero's.

There will never be a shortage of people who ride their coat tails.

There will never be a shortage of people who need Hero's.

But... there will always be a shortage of true Hero's.
