Today marks the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States. Accordingly, we here at Abnormal Use and Gallivan, White, & Boyd, P.A. will take a moment to reflect on this solemn occasion. There is no denying that we are a different country today than we were on September 10, 2001. And yet we are also the same country – a place where we have the freedom to disagree with anyone about any subject, openly and in public. Blogs like ours are not possible in many of the world’s countries, and we are thankful for the opportunity to express our opinions, and read the opinions of others, in a forum that sparks lively and at times heated conversations. We now have to take off our shoes before passing through metal detectors at the airport, and the purse searches at the ballpark are a little more thorough than they used to be. But we are still free to disagree with one another and, for that matter, our government. In that way, the attacks failed miserably to achieve their purpose. But on this day, on this anniversary of one of the greatest tragedies this nation has ever seen, we pause to reflect upon those who lost their lives that day and those who heroically came to the scene to respond to what had happened. They and their families remain in our thoughts and prayers.
