September 11th

11 Sep

It’s been eleven years since the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 killed nearly 3,000 people and led to long-running U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

For the first time, the memorial ceremony at the 9/11 National Memorial in Manhattan will not feature any politician, in an attempt to focus it on the private grief of survivors and victims’ relatives.

Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are expected to limit their campaigning, and to cancel negative advertising for the day.

As they should.
