September 11, 2001

Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results.

-Machiavelli

On the eleventh anniversary of the horrific attacks upon America, remember the immortal words of Machiavelli, more commonly stated thus:  "Those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it."

I will never forget.

Very few will forget. I was in S.Africa at the time and I know exactly where I was and what I was doing when both towers were hit. Diane
