Many of us, I suspect, are relieved that the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001, is over.

For the most part, the remembrances and events of the day were well suited to the occasion. Many of us chose to highlight some of the “silver linings,” from acts of heroism to the kindness of strangers in places like Gander, Newfoundland.
Sadly, the remembrances did not rekindle the national unity we experienced after that terrorist attack.
