It's been six years now since our lives changed forever.
Yet we don't seem to be too much more different.
The government quickly moved in 2001 to limit our civil liberties in the name of security. We have had many discussions on whether we should trust the government or demand accountability. We have declared "war" on the non-entity "terror." We have invaded two countries, yet are apparently no closer to catching the leader of the group responsible for the attack on our nation.
I keep trying to think of something, anything, unique to say, but really, I can't. I feel as though we should have changed, but we didn't. Instead, it feels as though our leaders took this tragedy and tried to milk it for political gain and popular control. I feel like the only real change is that people in America now feel an obligation to stop for a minute and think about September 11, 2001. And that makes me sad.
