  • Things have certainly changed.

    The world is definitely a different place.

    But do we continue to learn, 10 years after the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001?

    Students and teachers, no doubt, took time to discuss the matter in school this week. Maybe it was a small part of a lesson, maybe it was a whole class, but the events of that day do not appear to have worked their way into the fabric of U.S. and world history classes like D-day or the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

  • The threads we have woven together in the 10 years since terrorists stole commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and, with help, a field in Pennsylvania form a yarn that stretches across generations.

    We look back, and those of us who saw what happened, saw those Twin Towers pierced by jets, saw them one by one crumble and fall as if they were a child’s toys and not man-made spires, feel that yarn wrap around us with a tension that won’t ever quite ease up, even after days, weeks and years and – now – a decade.

  • No one has ever forgotten the terrible loss of American life 10 years ago at the hands of terrorists.

    Shelby County Sheriff Mike Armstrong called it one of the worst days in our nation’s history.

    Now, a decade after al-Qaida terrorists killed 3,000 people in four separate attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania, as the nation prepares to honor its dead on Sunday, many are reflecting upon the changes that terrible day has wrought on our society.

    In Shelby County, the answer is clear.

    They celebrated with a renewal ceremony in the presence of family and friends in the floral garden courtyard setting of Dawson Springs Health and Rehabilitation Center. Rev. Wes Curtis, employee of the center, officiated the ceremony.
