A day to remember
By Mary Friedel-Hunt

I was watching the coverage of the anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. As Presidents Obama and Bush walked onto the platform, they were immediately led behind a bulletproof shield. A youth choir began to sing. How sad, I thought, that these young children have to see their president standing behind a bulletproof protective shield. These kids were infants on the day America was attacked. They have spent their entire lives in post-9/11 days. They have only known a country where security at airports demands that we submit to searches. They have lived their years in a world at war, a world in search of Osama bin Laden, a world too focused on terrorism and fear.
