neo, one slip in over 60 years, as horrific as it was, is not a lot. You'd probably really lose it if you knew how many threats are averted daily. We
have to keep things in perspective.
Again, it was a horrible attack. And it fundamentally changed us...and maybe in some not so great ways.
I totally respect the opinions of those who lost friends and loved ones that day, and in point of fact, I am one of those people. However, not all of
them feel as some do about this center. Many view it as a way to heal. And also to uphold the principles of this country. If we go against these
principles, if the attacks of that day make us fundamentally change even that much more, maybe the terrorists did win.
Not everyone is going to agree on this or get overly emotional about it. But don't assume that's it's necessarily for the reasons you might assume.
Just stuff to think about is all.
