Remembering September 11
In a meant-to-be-moving moment at last night? convention, delegates in a darkened Fleet Center held up flashlight candles during a remembrance of September 11?he Democratic version of a thousand points of light.
Hours later near the famous Ye Olde Oyster House, an enterprising delegate was seen using the 9/11 ?andleto hail a cab...
If the terrorist attacks of 2001 were on Democratic minds last night, they were certainly less front lobe and center on Sunday evening, July 25. As convention-goers scattered after a UAW-DaimlerChrysler-sponsored concert at City Hall Plaza, few stopped to look at the 9/ll memorial. Too bad. On a block of concrete are hundreds of 4-inch-square panels sent in to the Boston Herald with thoughts about the tragedy.
One by K. Prata of Boston says: ?h, our heavy hearts, our long overdue showing of patriotism, and our love for our fellow countrymen; we can no longer spoil our children and take for granted the freedoms we enjoy. Thanks to our military members and our forefatherslaws to live by.
?ow to get used to a feeling of vulnerability; how to teach our children still to love fellow human beings; how not to be afraid of each othersdifferences. God bless us all./p>
Things the Dems?nd Republicans?ight think about as we head into a divisive election.
