Lewyn Addresses America

A little politics, a little urbanism- I also blog 100 percent on urbanism at https://www.planetizen.com/user/63 and http://www.cnu.org/blog/194

Today is the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon- an attack that caused not only thousands of deaths on that day, but also hundreds of thousands of deaths (a few thousand American, mostly natives of nations invaded by the U.S.) in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that followed that attack, plus whoever dies as a result of the ISIS-related wars that grew out of the Iraq war.

There are many people who have dramatic stories about someone they knew who died or was horribly injured either on 9/11 or in those wars, or at least about how the traumas they suffered.  I am grateful that I am not one of them, nad that I really have nothing very interesting to say about the whole matter.
