At present, COVID-19 is killing as many people as 9/11 did about every four days.
So long as the national security apparatus put in place after 9/11 in our collective madness remains in place, the tools of fascism will remain available to any Mussolini wanna-be who pursues the Presidency.
If We the People fail to be understand and accept our own responsibility for the atrocities that happened after 9/11 in our name, and yes, even for the atrocities that inspired 9/11 in the first place, we will see the same horrors visited upon our land again and again and again.
For many of us as individuals, the wounds from 9/11 may never heal. But it is long past time for all of us to let go of our collective mourning and allow the national wounds inflicted by 9/11 to scar over.
