There was a moment, however brief, that we were not (R)epublican, (D)emocrat or (L)ibertarian, but just citizens of the same place. We were all scarred. We all came together to help our fellow citizens, whether or not they shared our politics, our party.
9/11 reminds us of that moment, however brief, that we were simply Americans, doing what we could do to help, as individuals, our fellow citizens.
What should be remembered on 9/11 is the beauty of that moment, however brief.
