9-11, 7 years later

September 11, 2008 at 9:52 pm | Posted in tech | Leave a comment

The anniversary September 11th is quiet this year, likely eclipsed by the closing months of the presidential campaign and fading memories for some.  Osama bin Laden remains at large, likely in the mountainous region on the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan.  U.S. forces are still engaged in Afghanistan and Iraq.

At home the ripple effect of 9-11 passes largely unnoticed until you visit an airport.  Gone are the days of meeting someone at the gate or cruising through security.

Erin McClam’s essay on Associated Press commemorates this sad anniversary by combining the personal stories with the global scene.

Take a moment this year to think about what the last seven years have brought. Remember where you were.
