06 Sep 2002 Measuring the Costs of September 11th
Posted at 14:08h in The Friday BriefWhat have we lost since September 11th? We are all infinitely more aware of just how quickly thousands of people can die at the hands of terrorist murderers. On that horrible day, the lives of three thousand fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, and children were abruptly and tragically ended. We all watched it in living horror. During the past year, with that knowledge we readily sacrificed some of our cherished freedoms. We continue to debate how many more liberties we will yield in the name of domestic security, but we have already given up much.
