Today marks ten years since our nation was attacked.

I feel like it’s tacky to tell you what I was doing when it happened, or to draw some broad conclusions about the way we are, or to use it as a teaching tool to tell you about how we should conduct our foreign relations.

Rather, I just want to say that my thoughts are with the families of those who were lost, and with those who risked their lives to help.  9/11/2001 was a sad day in American history, but it was also one in which the U.S. was kind of at its best – we were united in our grief, we were generous with our help, our resources, our sympathies.  That’s something that I’m proud of today.
