Most of us react viscerally when we see horrific events. We gasp, we cry, we hurt. We are human.
Then we get angry. We rage, we vow, we plan. We are human.
These are hard times for America. Most of us have never experienced our country being so violated. Most of us weren't around for Pearl Harbor. The last large-scale violent attack against us came from within, from our own people. That one, in Oklahoma City, hurt our nation deeply, saddened us. We couldn't believe one of us would do this to us.
This one comes from outside, at least from all indications. That makes us angry.
That someone would orchestrate attacks that would kill thousands of our people, innocent people, along with many of his own, shows how sick and twisted the architect of this horror is. We have ideas about who it is, but we should not act until we know for certain. Then we should act with all available force until the world is rid of such a monster.
