The 10th anniversary of 9/11, and what have we learned?
Did we learn that violence and war beget more violence and war? Or did we learn that peace and constructive assistance create more of the same.
Did we learn that our dependence on foreign oil creates dangerous partnerships? Or did we challenge ourselves to pursue energy independence.
Did we learn that the extremely wealthy and powerful Americans are in bed with the Saudi royal family? Or did we turn our backs on that inconvenient truth.
Did we learn not to swallow the "official" version of events hook, line, and sinker? Or did we ask the tough questions and demand answers.
Did we realize we have just suffered what others countries have been dealing with for decades? Or did we wallow in our grief to the point of jingoism.
Did we learn the lessons of shared community? Or did we phone in death threats to anyone with an Arab name or wearing a Sikh head covering.
Did we learn that America is only one small nation on this giant planet? Or did we continue with our "We're No.1!" chants.
What have we learned?
