Nine years of 9/11s – a September 11th retrospective

Am I the only journalist who hasn’t penned a Sept. 11 retrospective this morning? Or, at the very least, posted some memorable 9/11 quotes or photos online?

No, I’m sure there are others out there. What else can be said about terrorism, travel, the 9/11 memorial, that hasn’t already been said?

Maybe it’s an unspoken desire for Sept. 11 to become just another day, for everything to go back to the way it was before. (Not likely to happen next year, which will be the 10th anniversary of the terrorist event.)

I haven’t written anything profound this year, but I wanted to point you to someone who has. My colleague Charlie Leocha has updated his unsung heroes tribute, which argues that flight attendants and, to some extent, airline passengers have been silent victims of 9/11. It’s worth a read.
