This was an act of evil perpetrated by men who believed in killing anyone who didn't share their twisted world view. It was an assault on our freedoms that can never be justified or allowed to take place again. We must remember it as an attack on all of civilization, not just the United States, or we risk losing all that is civil. This was more than just "a heinous crime." To call it that serves a grave injustice to those who gave their lives and to those who continue to give their lives fighting terrorism and totalitarian regimes. May we all carry the hopes and dreams of the victims in our hearts; fathers, mothers, daughters, and sons, from many different nations representing many different faiths, and never forget their sacrifice during the tragic moments of September 11, 2001.
