This is the first time I've spent the 9/11 anniversary out of the country. Last week, I spent the day at Auschwitz in southern Poland. Outside of the horrific days I spent watching what was left of the World Trade Center -- and of my countrymen and women -- burn, it was one of the most powerful days of my life. I'll be takling about it next week on the pod, but for today I want to say mourn our dead and bless our heroes, pray for those in the shadows woes job is to keep us safe. Take a moment to remember Israel, living under the threat of a second Holocaust.
The world has become an increasingly dangerous place. As I have said before, the quest -- the Great American Constitutional Quest -- stands balanced on a knife's blade...a fraction of a movement in the wrong direction, and the quest, the quest that has been the savior of the world, will fail.
The 11th Anniversary of 9/11, and we dance upon the abyss with gay abandon, blind to the voices who cry warning.
