I Wish I Had Paid More Attention

I will always remember the events of this day, 7 years ago. In fact there is no way I could ever forget. I will not dwell; I will not rehash what I was doing when I heard the news; I will, however, remember.

One thing I wish I had done was pay more attention. I wish I had paid more attention to current events leading up to that day. I wish I had paid attention to the threat posed by those who hate us and our freedom. I wish I had understood what the World Trade Center was and its iconic significance before it was destroyed. I wish I had been more prepared.

I don't think I could ever understand the true magnitude of what happened that day - I think only our Lord knows that.

But I will remember.
