Ten years ago, on Feb. 26, 1993, a bomb built by a group of Islamic extremists exploded in the parking garage of New York's World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 others.

What a shame we didn't declare war on terrorism then....9/11 might have been avoided...

Indeed.... it is a sad day...

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

Indeed... In retrospect - If only we could turn a few pages back..

The value of hindsight! So true...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

"we" read that in the newspaper yesterday and were commenting on how 'hindsight is 20/20'...

we live, we learn, we grieve, we rejoice...and most of all, we change.

On my birthday too.

War on terrorism? It's a terrorist an undefinable target?

Yes, hindsight is 20/20 but the interesting point is that, if things are done, there is no hindsight. If a war on terrorism had been declared than and there had not been a 9/11, then there would have been nothing to look back on and know we did the right thing...just as if we act now and avoid future 9/11's we'll never know what we may have prevented because they will not have happened. Quite a quandry...
