9/11….Seventeen Years Later

 

 

Today, it’s important to remember.  I’ve written about 9/11 before:

My reaction to 9/11 wasn’t limited to the terrible events in NY, DC-VA, and PA.  Being involved in the poker business, I also had this to say about the reaction of the poker community to the tragedy.  I’m still on the fence as to what happened that day, when a tournament was played as the nation was under attack.  These were my thoughts:

Finally, I was deeply moved by this 5-minute report on CBS Sunday Morning, which is a profile of the new monument dedicated today in Pennsylvania.  We sometimes forget about the terrible thing that happened to the people on that flight.  But they were brave.  Please watch this wonderful tribute to their bravery and their memory:
