Pagans on 9/11

I don’t have anything wise or thought-provoking to say today. Plenty of people are waxing eloquent today. I’m simply thinking about how much has changed in 10 years. Regardless of the influence of 9/11, none of us are the same people we were a decade ago. On top of the inevitable changes time brings us, we have the changes 9/11 brought as well. Would the Pentacle Quest have happened without 9/11? Would Patrick Stewart be home with his wife Roberta rather than becoming a symbol of Pagan religious rights?

I don’t know.

    I remember waking up to my phone ringing… It was my boss calling to ask if I was watching the news. I told him “no, I was asleep” he said turn on the news.

    I turned on the TV just seconds before the second plane hit the world trade center. I remember the reporters talking about this being the most tragic accident in aviation history, then we all saw the second plane coming in… When it struck the second tower, the reporters were babbling. They just plain forgot that they were broadcasting live and started talking among themselves 

    “That was no accident…”

    The rest of the day was like a strange dream that no one wanted to believe…

    The years since that attack have bit by bit eroded the rights that we all took for granted before. The government has powers that they didn’t have before and have done things that they wouldn’t have done before… At least not openly. They have taken advantage of the situation to make it more difficult for the “Land of the Free” to be the land of the free. This is one of the real tragedies…
