- The Washington Times - Thursday, September 15, 2011


On the Monday morning after the 10th anniversary of the murderous attacks on our country on Sept. 11, 2001, I was left with the same anger, sadness and feeling of loss I experience every time I see those two huge black holes in the middle of the greatest city in the world.

The World Trade Center towers should have been rebuilt immediately to show we will never cave to violence or hatred. These two voids, lined with trees, are in no way representative of our spirit of survival. We caved, and now celebrate two gaping holes while the enemy smiles at our loss.

I say, rebuild just as the ants do when their anthill is covered over. Don’t give in to the bad guys - just keep on building. I am sorry that our nation rolled over on this one.
