9/11/01 - 9/11/11

10 Years.

Murphy's Law has a fitting tribute to the fire and police personnel lost that day.

10 years later there is still no completed replacement standing for these magnificent buildings. To put this in perspective, it only took 7 years to build them both originally.

Instead, we now have two large man-made fountains, each an acre in size with 30 foot deep holes in the ground like eternal scars where each tower once stood.

This does not seem to be a befitting way to remember those who died in the towers and the towers themselves.

America can and should do it better than that.

10 years later we're still fighting the same war on Islamist extremists, and the holes in the Manhattan landscape remain.

10 Years later, not Forgotten, not Forgiven.
